IDP launches regarding Ernst Senate announcement

DES MOINES, IA – The National Republican establishment does not want Iowa voters to have a voice and has spent months telling conservatives not to run for U.S. Senate, trying to clear the way for their pawn, Joni Ernst.

“The Republican establishment including Karl Rove and Terry Branstad are about to get their way now that Joni Ernst announced she’s running for Senate, just days after she said she needed another two weeks to decide” said Iowa Democratic Party Executive Director Troy Price, “We know that Ernst will be the Republican establishment’s pick, but we don’t know much else. She’s hasn’t taken positions on important issues and she was hand picked to run for State Senate and has yet to be tested in a competitive race.”

The website highlights the months of work republicans have spent keeping true conservatives like Congressman Steve King out of running and the public push to get Ernst in the race. Last month Politico reported that Ernst has hired a Texas-based Republican strategist to prepare for her announcement.
