A Democratic former U.S. Attorney filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to run for Senate in Iowa, the Associated Press reported today.
Roxanne Conlin, who served as the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa from 1977 to 1981, is looking to unseat Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). But first, she will have to battle former state Sen. Tom Fiegen, former state Rep. Bob Krause and frequent candidate Sal Mohamed for the Democratic nomination.
“Taking on the special interests has been the cause of my life,” she said in a campaign video released today. “I’m running for U.S. Senate to take this fight to Washington.”

The former prosecutor was the Democratic nominee for Iowa governor in 1982. Conlin has been in private practice since 1983. She is a partner at Des Moines law firm Roxanne Conlin & Associates. Read our previous report on her here.
