Krusty Konservative: Looking at a Griswell vs. Grassley race
Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative
I read somewhere on-line that Barry Griswell might be the Democrats'
dark horse candidate against Sen. Chuck Grassley. Griswell, the
recently retired CEO of Des Moines-based Principal Financial Group,
has also been involved in numerous community activities and causes in
central Iowa. Griswell has been involved as the President of the
Greater Des Moines Community Foundation and served on the United Way
of America board of trustees. ... There is no doubt that Barry
Griswell is an Iowa success story, but will his success in business
make him a good political candidate? I'll be the first to say, I don't
think Barry Griswell is the candidate that Iowa Democrats are looking
for. It just seems like an odd fit.
