Catch Chuck Grassley This Week In Iowa – Washington, Columbus Junction Town Halls


Important information from ProgressIowa

Everyone has heard of Chuck Grassley’s 99 County Tour, right? It’s hard not to, as much as he talks about it.

But there’s a funny thing about that claim: most of his county events are private and not open to public audiences. Progress Iowa’s recent research shows Grassley hasn’t held a public event in 8 of Iowa’s 10 largest counties in 6 years! The counties he’s avoided hearing from the general public in make up 45% of the state’s population.

That’s why we’re renaming Grassley’s annual tour the Fake Grassley. He has established a pattern of hiding from Iowa’s most-populated areas where constituents might be more likely to disagree with him.
