Why He Matters
Davis is a longtime aide to Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa). After Grassley was named ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee at the beginning of the 112th Congress, he appointed Davis as his staff director and chief counsel.
Davis, an Indiana native, has worked for Grassley since 1985. Ten of those years, from 2001 to 2011, were spent working as Grassley's Repulican staff director and chief counsel to the Senate Finance Committee, where the senator served as both chairman and ranking member for many years.
