What does this Tweet mean?

U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) tweets.  Today, those who subscribe to his Twitter feed saw this: Attention Ia legislative business lobbyists:I visit w many Repbli can REPs and Sntors. Don't take ur frends 4granted.U spend all time w Dem

As one wag suggested, perhaps the business lobbyists spend all their time with the Democrats  because Democrats currently control the legislature's debate agenda.  Republicans are a distinct minority in the Iowa Senate – 32 Democrats & 18 Republicans serve in the Senate – and Democrats hold 56 of the 100 seats in the Iowa House, which means Grassley's grandson, Pat Grassley — a Republican state representative — is in the minority there as well.
