Where's Chuck?

Monday, March 28, 2016

The U.S. Senate is on a two-week break, including the week before Easter and the week after. Usually during such a break, Senator Chuck Grassley schedules public appearances in Iowa as part of his 99-county-every-year tour of the state.

This year, he is only holding three closed door meetings during this two-week break.

Apparently, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee doesn't want to face questions from constituents about the refusal of the Republican controlled Senate to consider President Obama's Supreme Court nominee.
