Grassley celebrates 80th birthday with 6-mile run

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Sen. Chuck Grassley celebrated his 80th birthday with a 6-mile run.

The Des Moines Register reports Tuesday that Grassley ran from his townhome in Arlington, Va., to the Capitol.

Grassley aide Jill Gerber says the senator also planned to have ice cream with his staff.

Grassley — a native of New Hartford — was born in Sept. 17, 1933. The Republican is Iowa’s senior senator and has served in the Senate since 1981. Before that he served in the U.S. House and the Iowa House.

Grassley typically does a 3-mile run, four times a week.
