With just over a week to go in the campaign, incumbent Republican Senator Joni Ernst spent the weekend in D.C. taking procedural votes before today’s (Monday’s) vote to confirm U.S. Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett.
Theresa Greenfield, the Iowa Democratic Party’s U.S. Senate candidate, campaigned in seven counties over the weekend.
Ernst spoke with Radio Iowa by phone from Washington, D.C. saying she has a duty to stay in D.C. to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
