WASHINGTON (CNN) - Iowa’s senior Republican lawmaker says he believes that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will win the Iowa caucuses.
Sen. Chuck Grassley also predicts that former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee will place second and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani will finish third in the caucuses. Romney is the leader in most state polls in Iowa, with Huckabee in second place. Grassley is not endorsing any Republican candidates in the caucuses.
The longtime senator made his comments during a discussion Tuesday with reporters in Iowa. The Iowa caucuses will be held on January 3rd, and will kick off the presidential primary season.
