Gronstal pokes Yepsen; Yepsen jibes back

Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal (D-Council Bluffs) is the guest on this evening's edition of "Iowa Press" on Iowa Public Television.  Des Moines Register columnist David Yepsen is one of the "questioners" on the show (as you may know, Yepsen is leaving the Register for academia).

After Yepsen posed a question about a possible alteration to a union-backed bill,Gronstal replied: "You know, Dave, you're changing careers now, but you have the makings of a legislator."

"That hurts, senator," Yepsen replied.

UPDATE:  Here's the Radio Iowa story, based on what Gronstal said this morning.
