WASHINGTON D.C. — Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley is considering another six years in office.

On Wednesday, the Republican senator filed a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission. This doesn’t guarantee he will run for an eighth term.

At 87, Grassley is currently the second oldest U.S. Senator. He was sworn into the Senate in 1981.
