11. My 85 yr old uncle died from it while my 82 yr old aunt lived.

Comorbidities notwithstanding this virus is still a mystery.

3. Only last month: Grassley Refuses to Get Tested

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) will not be tested for the coronavirus, despite attending a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting with a fellow senator who later tested positive for the virus.

7. So, when old Chuck dies, is that going to be a special election? Or does the Governor appoint

Someone to his seat?

8. Corrected headline:

"Covid Tests Positive For Grassley"

We need to be straight about which is the disease......

12. If an Iowa senator dies in office then the governor

appoints a temporary replacement until the next general election when the winning candidate would complete the rest of the term.

Be careful what you ask for because if Grassley dies the the person who replaces him would have the “incumbency” edge.
