Yet another leading Republican has tested positive for coronavirus.


Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) announced on Tuesday that he would remain in quarantine after testing positive.

Grassley, 87, is the oldest Republican senator and is only months younger than the oldest member of the body.

The Iowa Republican has served in the Senate since 1981 and chairs the Senate Finance Committee.
