DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa House Republicans have chosen Rep. Pat Grassley to head their leadership teams as Speaker-Select of the Iowa House.
The grandson of U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley was chosen by the GOP House caucus on Monday. He takes over as speaker after a vote of the full House in January.
Current Speaker Linda Upmeyer announced last week she would step down as speaker but serve the remainder of her current House term through the end of 2020.
