Grassley Aide to Run For Senate

Updated: Sunday, June 2 2013, 03:54 PM CDT
VAN METER, Iowa (AP) -- Republican David Young, who was U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley's top aide, is running for Iowa's other U.S. Senate seat in 2014.
   Young said Sunday that after talking with friends and family he decided to run for the Senate seat being vacated by retiring five-term Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin.
   The GOP Senate race may be a crowded one because Rep. Steve King, Rep. Tom Latham and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds all decided not to run. Republican former U.S. Attorney Matt Whitaker is already running.
   Young says he thinks his experience as Grassley's chief of staff would help him accomplish more in the Senate if he was elected.
   Young lives in Van Meter, Iowa, and says he's looking forward to campaigning.
   Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley of Waterloo is his party's only candidate.
