Grassley: Chance for Dem Challenge to Obama

Thursday, 11 Nov 2010 09:40 AM

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa believes it is possible a candidate could emerge to challenge Obama for his party's nomination in 2012, but qualifies that they would have to be willing to visit most of Iowa's 99 counties.

"If they're willing to put in the time for retail politics, they would have a chance of doing it, yes," Grassley tells Newsmax.TV's Ashley Martella.

"But you've got to remember [Obama] surprised everybody with the tremendous organization he has, and even though he's less popular now that he was when he was elected president, there's still a tremendous allegiance to him in the base of the Democratic Party. And you'd have to work hard to overcome that."
