DeSantis On Iowa County Campaign, Will Keep ‘Full Grassley’ Promise

As promised, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) will visit all 99 counties in Iowa as part of his 2024 presidential campaign. DeSantis said on Friday that he will finish the “full Grassley,” named for senior Senator Chuck Grassley of the Hawkeye State, with a final campaign stop on Saturday.

Even though DeSantis will miss his initial Halloween target date by a little more than a month, the accomplishment highlights how important Iowa is to his campaign hopes. The governor of Florida has already received the support of several people in the state, including Governor Kim Reynolds (R) and Bob Vander Plaats, an influential evangelical.

The governor of Florida already has many supporters in the state, including Bob Vander Plaats, the head of the evangelical movement, and Governor Kim Reynolds (R). DeSantis has concentrated on Iowa in the hopes that a strong showing there could give his campaign momentum, even though he is currently far behind former President Trump in national primary polling.

However, in recent weeks, Nikki Haley, the former ambassador to the United Nations, has gained ground on DeSantis, making Iowa, South Carolina, and other early states crucial battlegrounds for both campaigns. The primary election season will begin with the Iowa caucuses on January 15.

“When I tell you I’m going to do something, you can take that promise to the bank,” DeSantis said on X (Formerly Twitter).
