David Young Files in Race to Fill Harkin's Seat

Updated: Sunday, June 2 2013, 10:06 AM CDT

VAN METER (CBS 2/FOX 28) - The former Chief of Staff to Sen. Chuck Grassley filed papers Saturday to seek retiring Sen. Tom Harkin's seat.

David Young signed the paperwork Saturday to make a run for the US Senate.

Young finished his Statement of Candidacy Saturday afternoon at Fat Randi's Bar and Grill in Van Meter, where he grew up and graduated from Johnston High School.

Young says his experience as Grassley's Chief of Staff gives him more experience than others running to fill the retiring Democrat's seat.

"A lot of people who run for the Senate say they're going to do this that or the other," Young said in a statement. "It's not as easy as you think, but I can hit the ground running right away."

Grassley says of his former aide "After working for three different senators and working for me for seven years, I can say without a doubt that he would be qualified on day one to start out as a senator who knows exactly how to get things done."
