Charles Ernest "Chuck" Grassley (born September 17, 1933 in New Hartford, Iowa) is the senior U.S. Senator from Iowa. He has been Senator since 1981. He was also in the United States House of Representatives from 1975 to 1981. Before that he was in the Iowa state legislature from 1959 to 1974.
In January 2019, Grassley will become the most senior Republican serving in the United States Senate due to the retirement of Orrin Hatch and the resignation of Thad Cochran. Should the Republicans have control of the Senate in the 2018 elections, this would make Grassley the next Senate President pro tempore.
