Des Moines attorney Roxanne Conlin says she will not launch a campaign against incumbent republican U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley. The former democratic candidate for governor was considering a run against Grassley, but says she decided commitments to her legal clients are too strong to break. She says she’s had so much feedback from clients who ask “My God, does this mean you won’t be handling my case?” She says that makes her feel very bad, as she says she has to speak for people who can’t speak for themselves. Conlin is currently working on a case representing Minnesota consumers who believe they’ve been harmed by Microsoft’s antitrust and anticompetative activities. Conlin won a three-way race for the democratic nomination for governor in 1982 and eventually lost to republican Terry Branstad.
