National media personality Steve Deace has endorsed State Sen. Jim Carlin in his Republican primary challenge to U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley. The Blaze announced the endorsement with an op-ed from Deace, who has played a major role in reshaping the political landscape in Iowa over the last 15 years.

“It is time for Iowa to have representations in the U.S. Senate that represents that shift towards bold colors and to say no to a sixth decade of pale pastels,” Deace wrote. “I am making my first endorsement for a federal office since 2016 by endorsing Jim Carlin for U.S. Senate in my state’s primary election, coming up on June 7.”


Deace wrote Carlin “embodies” a new coalition of conservative/America First populism. He suggests readers listen to his interview with Daniel Horowitz.

“Carlin was forged for such a time as this,” Deace wrote. “Meanwhile, his opponent is past his time. Way, way, way, way, way, way, way past his time, in fact. And we are running out of time to send to D.C. people who will fight for us, as opposed to fight us for D.C.”

Deace suggested Grassley should not even be seeking another term — an eighth term — to the U.S. Senate.

“It is more than a little gross that he is even running against. He is 88 years old and far from being anything resembling indispensable, as his F Liberty Score at Conservative Review confirms. How in the world does a Republican have such a terrible record during the Biden era?”

Deace labeled Grassley’s re-election bide as a “Weekend at Bernie’s re-election bid in order to pave the way for Pat Grassley, Chuck’s grandson, to fill the seat when called upon.

“The younger Grassley’s chamber failed on multiple issues, such as school choice, despite an overwhelmingly favorable environment and a governor openly advertising her willingness to sign bold legislation into law,” Deace wrote.

Carlin, Deace wrote, is an “uncompromising voice” in the State Senate who supported school choice, has criticized the trans porn going through America’s libraries, has championed medical freedom.

“Carlin is already speaking boldly on (the medical freedom) issue while even most of our senators with impressive Liberty Scores are cowering from it,” Deace wrote. “And as an Iowan, he knows manure when he sees it, which is why he’s also not buying ‘the most secure election of our lifetimes.'”

Deace called for Iowans to elect better people and reject “political dynasties.”

“We finally ended the reign of Bushes, and it is now time to put the Grassleys out to pasture. Grassley has had six decades to put a stop to this evil, and instead has too often enabled it. We don’t have any more time as a culture to feed his ego and fulfill his family tree. We have a civilization to save.”
