The Iowa Republican: Kiernan lied about top-tier US candidate to challenge Grassley

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

Last week, Iowa Democratic Chairman Michael Kiernan said that Senator
Chuck Grassley will "be in the race of his life." Kiernan made the
comments on IPTV's Iowa Press program. He spent a considerable amount
of his time on the show driving speculation on the mystery Democrat.
Likewise, the news media quickly pounced on the idea of a serious
challenge to Grassley. There is just one problem - no such candidate
exists. Kiernan made it all up. Two sources have told
TheIowaRepublican.com that Kiernan admitted to concocting the mystery
candidate when top Democratic officials pressed their Party Chairman
on who this big name candidate was who would instill fear into
Grassley.
