Long-time Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley campaigned last week in Minnesota for fellow Republicans. KEYC in Mankato covered Grassley’s remarks. The sound quality isn’t stellar, but here is what Grassley said in the video clip: “People love America. Trouble is, we got a press that doesn’t love America and America gets blamed for everything, but not by the American people — just by the apologists for our country and we don’t need a president of a party who’s going to be an apologist for America.”
Grassley’s spokeswoman suggests that he was talking about the national press, not the Iowa media.
