State Sen. Joni Ernst has won the Republican primary for an Iowa U.S. Senate seat held for 30 years by retiring Democrat Tom Harkin.

The 43-year-old Ernst won the nomination over Sam Clovis, Mark Jacobs, Matt Whitaker and Scott Schaben.


OC….DEFEAT BRUCE BRALEY. :08

She’ll face Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley in the November general election and Ernst says she will ask for the support of her four opponents to unite against Braley:

Braley says he will take his campaign to the four corners of the state:


OC…..WORKING FAMILIES. ;17

If she wins election to the Senate, Ernst would become the first Iowa woman elected to Congress.
