Chuck Grassley lavishes Santorum with praise


Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, who's neutral in the race, nevertheless looks fondly on his former Senate colleague, Rick Santorum.

“I can say this: The sincerity and effort that he has to get his point across in the presidential campaign is almost a total reflection of how he operated as a United States senator,” Grassley said.

“He is transparent. A tough fighter. A person not afraid to take on tough issues.”

Santorum's campaign blasted over the remarks to reporters.
