This could be our next Senator from Iowa. God help us.
MSNBC, The Reid Report, Nov. 3, 2014. Lil' Luke Russert was all aflutter about "certifiable rock star in the making" Joni Ernst, and touted the Iowa GOP Senate candidate as a potential contender as a vice presidential pick for 2016. Host Joy Reid pointed out how amazing it was that her opponent Bruce Braley hadn't been able to capitalize on Ernst's extreme right wing views.
(KWWL) News Anchor, Ron Steele: Nikki, I don't want to sound like a whiner, but our interview request isn't the first that Sen. Ernst has not been able to make recently. Newbrough: She declined to sit down with multiple Iowa newspapers, but just today she did do an interview with Fox News. She admits meeting with newspaper editorial boards would hurt her campaign. She claims some have already made up their minds. --(Scarce) Apparently Ernst thinks she will only be representing Iowans who actually vote for her.
Or as she said, why should she meet with an editorial board which made it clear "they would not be supporting her candidacy" and "weren't going to endorse her"? Besides, isn't that what Fox News is for?
Joni Ernst won't meet with the editorial boards of the largest Iowa papers, but she always has time for Fox News.
(Media Matters) On October 24, Ernst sat down for a softball interview with the hosts of Fox & Friends. Fox ran two of Ernst's campaign ads -- her infamous pig castration spot and a recent sequel -- while co-host Peter Johnson, Jr. commented that Ernst had "captured the imagination of voters." Co-host Brian Kilmeade called her "one of the more exciting new candidates."
Republican Senate candidate in Iowa Joni Ernst made her name earlier this year as the lady who castrates hogs. She's back with another ad with her favorite barnyard animals.
Doug Butzier was running as the Libertarian candidate in Iowa when his small plane crashed on Monday night.
Joni Ernst is desperately trying to backpedal on her support for nullification, but she's still leading in the polls.
It is no wonder why the Koch brothers always hold their political retreats with their fellow billionaires and multi-millionaires in highly secretive sessions.
