Democrats have landed an opponent for Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), in former gubernatorial nominee Roxanne Conlin.
Conlin will reportedly file her paperwork for the race next week.
Grassley's seat is one Democrats have targeted a little bit since the health care debate began. His maneuvers on the Senate Finance Committee have rubbed many Democrats the wrong way, and with few other targets left, a swing state like Iowa was a logical next step for recruiting.
Though he has consistently been popular, Grassley's numbers have come down in recent polling. He is still at 57 percent approval though.
Either way, Conlin will have an uphill battle. The 1982 gubernatorial nominee (she lost 53-47 to Republican Gov. Terry Branstad) said she hopes to raise $10 million for the race.
