Donald J. Trump

45th President of the United States

“We have with us tonight a great American patriot, a man who truly loves Iowa.”

“He’s a young — very young guy. He’s strong. And he’s very handsome. He fights like no other. When I’ve needed him for help he was always there.

“I’m thrilled to announce tonight that Sen. Chuck Grassley has my complete and total endorsement for re-election.”

Joni Ernst

United states senator

“Returning Chuck Grassley to the U.S. Senate is good for the taxpayer, better for good government, and hands down what’s best for Iowa. Iowans count on Chuck Grassley. He’s my partner and my biggest champion, and I need him back in the Senate. Our great country needs him now more than ever to hold the line on the Democrats’ reckless spending spree and stop socialism from destroying the American Dream.”

Terry Branstad

Longest-serving governor in U.S. history and former Ambassador to China

“His leadership gives Chuck Grassley the influence to put Iowa on top. He digs into the weeds of farm, tax, trade, and energy policy that impact our state. His no-nonsense approach has him chewing up say, rotten bargains for ethanol and spitting them out for the administration to digest. This guy doesn’t gloss over the details, he reads the fine print to get it right for Iowa. Chuck Grassley’s reputation as a serious, unrelenting advocate for our state is indispensable. That’s how he’s earned the trust of the people of Iowa. Iowans count on Chuck. 

“No one outworks Chuck Grassley. I’m thrilled he’s running for re-election because Chuck Grassley works for Iowa and we need him in the U.S. Senate now more than ever.”

Ashley Hinson

U.S Representative for Iowa’s First District

“We need a strong, consistent, and common sense voice representing our state. Sending Chuck Grassley back to Washington is vital to ensuring Iowa families have a bright future. We need him in the U.S. Senate, and that is why I am proud to endorse Chuck Grassley for re-election. I’m excited to continue working with him to keep Iowa the best place to work, live, and raise a family.”

Mariannette Miller-Meeks

U.S. Representative for Iowa’s Second District

“Senator Grassley doesn’t mince words or cave to partisan shenanigans. Iowans remember his no-nonsense approach to the Kavanaugh hearings. No one railroads Chuck Grassley. He’s got the policy chops and a servant’s heart that are exactly what Iowa needs. 

“With much enthusiasm, I endorse Chuck Grassley for re-election and look forward to hitting the campaign trail together to again win the support of Iowans and continue to represent their voices in the nation’s capital.”

Randy Feenstra

U.S. Representative for Iowa’s Fourth District

“When you put in a farmer’s hours for decades in Washington, you accumulate a long list of accomplishments — not just for farmers, but for all Iowans. Chuck Grassley has earned respect on both sides of the aisle, making him one of the most effective lawmakers in the country. He’s the U.S. Senator Iowans, especially farmers, need in their corner for years to come.

“Returning Chuck Grassley to the U.S. Senate is the best thing that could happen for Iowa farmers and our state’s farm economy. I endorse Chuck Grassley for re-election.”

Sean Hannity

FOX NEWS PERSONALITY

“Senator Johnson, Senator Grassley – Thank you both for being courageous, and I’m supporting both of you in your campaigns.” – Fox News Host Sean Hannity

Elise Stefanik

U.S. Representative for New york’s twenty first District

“Few conservatives in Congress have accomplished more than Senator Chuck Grassley. As Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, Grassley confirmed hundreds of President Trump’s constitutionalist judges to the federal courts and led the confirmation of two Supreme Court Justices to lifetime tenure, cementing the high court’s conservative majority. I’m proud to join Sen. Grassley in calling the media out for their blatant cover-up and censorship of the Hunter Biden scandal.”

John Sorensen

President and CEO of the Iowa Bankers Association

“I can think of no public servant who has worked harder to make Iowa a better place to live, work and play. Our influential senior senator still has much to offer our state.”

Brooke Appleton

The National Corn Growers Association, Vice President, Public Policy

“Senator Grassley has been a tireless champion for policies important to corn growers. From the Renewable Fuel Standard, to farm bills, to tax issues, and trade priorities – we remain grateful for the Senator’s support and leadership.”

Marilyn Musgrave

SBA List’s Vice President of Government Affairs

“Senator Grassley is a fearless pro-life champion in the Senate and we are proud to stand with him as he seeks re-election,”

“He has proven his pro-life bona fides time and time again.“

Bob Vander Plaats

Family Advocate and Conservative Leader

“If you think of Justices Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett, elections matter, and Senator Grassley is a champion for life. He is a champion for family. Right now, if you take a look at the landscape under the Biden administration, this is not a seat you want to risk going into Democrat hands. You want to keep it safe and secure, and you want Senator Grassley to continue to punch well above Iowa’s weight class, do you not?”

National Federation of Independent Business

“Senator Chuck Grassley has been a strong small business supporter throughout his time in the U.S. Senate,” said NFIB Iowa State Director Matt Everson. “Sen. Grassley understands the challenges small businesses are facing and has been a strong advocate in the Senate on the issues most important to them, earning a 100% NFIB voting record during the 117th Congress. On behalf of small businesses in Iowa, we are pleased to endorse Sen. Grassley today for re-election.”

Citizens For Responsible Energy Solutions – CRES

“CRES is proud to endorse Senator Grassley to continue representing Iowa in the U.S. Senate. Thank you Senator Grassley for contributing to the policy landscape in ways that advance clean energy and reduce emissions while prioritizing the needs of the country.”

Iowa Farm Bureau

“Sen. Grassley has earned the Friend of Agriculture designation because he has a record of strong support for issues important to farmers and rural Iowans,” said Kriss Haglund, a Boone County farmer and Iowa Farm Bureau PAC Chair. “Sen. Grassley has long been a champion of agriculture in Washington, D.C. He has been a leader in defending taxpayers, promoting biofuels and fighting back against burdensome government regulations.”

National Rifle Association

“As the highest-ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, you have led the opposition to the Biden administration’s attempts to ban lawfully-owned firearms, ammunition and magazines, as well as unyielding efforts to undermine the Second Amendment by weaponizing the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) against law-abiding gun owners. NRA members also appreciate that you recently blocked an attempt by anti-gun Senators to bypass regular order and quickly pass so-called “universal” background check legislation on the U.S. Senate floor,” said Jason Ouimet, Chairman of the NRA-PVF.

Tea Party Express

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Senator Grassley is a fiscal hawk committed to reining in our out-of-control government spending. He’s earned the respect of his colleagues as a commonsense Conservative with the moral courage to stand up to wasteful spending policies liberals try to jam down our throats. His track record and commitment to preserving our constitutional liberties has earned him the endorsement of fellow conservatives like President Trump and Sean Hannity … Tea Party Express applauds his proven record of consistent fiscal conservatism through the years and his unwavering commitment to the people of Iowa.”
