Received this e-mail from the Iowa Democratic Party:
Six years ago today, Senator Joni Ernst made us a promise: she would “make Washington squeal.” But once she got to Washington, she turned her loyalties to Mitch McConnell and her special interest backers – and only made it that much tougher for Iowans.
So today, we are launching our first ad campaign of this election to hold Senator Ernst accountable!
Plain and simple, Senator Ernst has not fought for us.
Ernst put her political career first by giving a leg up to powerful corporations – green-lighting tens of billions in special interest handouts that exploded our deficit to over $1 trillion. She led efforts to end the Affordable Care Act and gut coverage protections for pre-existing conditions. And she's working behind closed doors to undermine Iowans' hard-earned retirement.
After Ernst's five failed years, Washington's big spenders aren't squealin'. Iowans are.
Senator Ernst's re-election campaign is more vulnerable than ever – she's not going to be easy to defeat, but we can do it together. Help elect a new senator who will fight for us!
