Grassley looks strong in "anti-incumbent" year

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Sen. Charles Grassley's chances at a sixth Senate term look strong.

Republican incumbents in other states have struggled but Grassley did not have a primary challenger and polls indicate he has a lead over Des Moines lawyer Roxanne Conlin.

Drake University political science professor Dennis Goldford says people who expected Grassley to be weakened by an anti-incumbent mood were forgetting that because Democrats are in charge in Washington, they're the ones who will be the focus of voter anger.
