Iowa’s Republican U-S Senator is applauding Monday’s unanimous vote that elected Tennessee Senator Bill Frist as his party’s new leader in the Senate. Chuck Grassley says Frist will be a “very, very good Senate Majority Leader”. Grassley says Frist underswtands nothing gets done in the United States Senate unless it’s done in a bipartisan way. Frist’s election ended the firestorm of the past few weeks that was sparked by now-former Republican leader Trent Lott of Mississippi making comments which some took as being racist. Grassley says Frist will heal the wounds that were opened during the month. Grassley says Frist gives Republicans a “fresh face” that’ll overcome insinuations of partisanship that flowed when Lott was the party’s leader. Lott resigned last week as Majority Leader but will remainin the Senate.
