Bruce Braley sorry for comments about Grassley

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Bruce Braley is apologizing to Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley for comments recorded during a fundraiser in Texas in which the Democrat inferred Iowa's senior senator was unfit to be judiciary committee chairman.

In video posted Tuesday from a January fundraiser, Braley said: "You might have a farmer from Iowa who never went to law school, never practiced law, serving as the next chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee."

Grassley, a Republican in his fifth term, has long owned a farm near New Hartford.

Braley, a lawyer before entering Congress in 2007, said in a press statement: "I apologize to Sen. Grassley and anyone I may have offended."

In the video, Braley also reaffirmed his opposition to "tort reform," a Republican term for reducing court-awarded damages.
