Iowa Republicans Show HUGE Support for Grassley and Kavanaugh!

They are both doing a tremendous job!


A Faith and Freedom rally ran by Republicans in Des Moines, Iowa had rousing support for Judge Kavanaugh and home-town Senator Chuck Grassley.

It was clear that support for Kavanaugh was strong and unwavering in the midst of what many consider to be baseless accusations.

Support was also very strong for Grassley, who has taken the lead in the confirmation process and held firm against what many consider to be unreasonable demands by Ford.  Many consider them nothing but hollow delay tactics.

But perhaps the quote of the night came from Rep. Steve King, who said this:

“I’m thinking, is there any man in this room that wouldn’t be subjected to such an allegation? A false allegation?” King said. “How can you disprove something like that? Which means, if that’s the new standard, no man will ever qualify for the Supreme Court again.”

Here are more details, from the DesMoinesRegister:

Republican leaders urged a crowd of Christian conservatives Saturday to rally behind Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and pray for the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh in Des Moines.

“Sen. Grassley is the single person who stood between the constitution and judicial tyranny,” said Steve Scheffler, president of the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition.

Nearly 700 people attended the coalition’s dinner in Des Moines on Saturday night, hearing from a lineup of speakers that included Scheffler, Gov. Kim Reynolds, U.S. Rep. David Young, U.S. Rep. Steve King, U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst and Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Jeff Kaufmann. U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio also spoke.

Iowans are deeply divided about whether Kavanaugh, who is facing allegations from Christine Blasey Ford that he assaulted her when they were both teenagers, should be confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court, a new Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll shows.

Just more than a third of Iowans surveyed believe he should be confirmed, another third say he should not and the remainder say they are not sure.

Kavanaugh has said the accusations are “completely false,” and the group on hand Saturday appeared largely supportive of him and Grassley.

When Ernst held up her cellphone to film a video message for Grassley — who was not in attendance — the crowd stood, cheered and applauded.

King, R-Kiron, said the allegations against amount to a “character assassination.” He said Ford’s allegations should not be considered credible because she does not remember some details of the alleged assault.

“I’m thinking, is there any man in this room that wouldn’t be subjected to such an allegation? A false allegation?” King said. “How can you disprove something like that? Which means, if that’s the new standard, no man will ever qualify for the Supreme Court again.”
