While there was a lot of hype about Roxanne Conlin being the candidate the Democrats have been waiting for who would really give Grassley a tough challenge, those high hopes never came to fruition.
Conlin proved to be a rather cold candidate, and voters just never warmed up to her. Meanwhile, Grassley managed to open his campaign with an infusion of humor (the Twitter ad) and then followed it up with many reminders of his record in standing up for Iowans and standing up against fraud.
Conlin never stood a chance.
