On Monday, Senator Chuck Grassley challenged the media in his own unique fashion – a push-up contest.
The 83 year old from Iowa matched Bloomberg TV’s chief Washington correspondent Kevin Cirilli in a feat of strength, keeping up with the much-younger journalist’s 25 push-ups.
“Iron senator! That was impressive… that was very impressive.” Cirilli applauded.
Grassley remains extremely active, such as regularly waking at 4 AM for a three mile run. In February, a high school student in St. Ansgar, Iowa, challenged Grassley to a push-up contest. The senator won.
