Chuck Grassley, the most influential Republican in Iowa, likes Huckabee. From the Washington Post: “Yesterday, Sen. Charles E. Grassley, Iowa’s leading Republican, said in an interview that he thinks Huckabee is ‘the guy who could surprise everybody’ in January. ‘It’s demeanor, background, personal beliefs, friendliness, stuff like that,’ Grassley said. ‘How he conducts himself, things of that nature. I’m talking about who fits in with the average Iowan, who are they going to feel comfortable with.’ ” There is not yet any formal endorsement since Grassley thinks Huckabee lacks the money to compete. However, when you talk to GOP party folks and activists in Iowa — those not on Huckabee’s team — you hear similar comments about Huckabee’s demeanor and ability to relate to caucus goers.
