The Iowa Republican: Mystery solved? Tom, not Christy

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

Grant Young has some information that will grab Senator Grassley and the rest of the Iowa GOP's attention. Young has a well placed source that says the chatter inside the U.S. Ag Department is that Current U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack is making initial preparations to return to Iowa to run for the United States Senate. Mike Kiernan, the chairman of the Iowa Democratic Party, has claimed that a "mystery" candidate to challenge Sen. Grassley this fall exists. However some of top Iowa Democrats, including Sen. Harkin and Mike Gronstal, have said that they don't know who Kiernan is referring to. Secretary Vilsack would be the most formidable candidate that Iowa Democrats could put up against Grassley.
