Republican Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa says a pandemic relief package is an immediate priority for the Republican-led senate yet this year.

OC……..relief bill done.:15

It’s unclear how large a relief package might be.

Senate Republicans opposed the one-point-eight trillion dollar spending level the White House and House Democratic leaders were discussing before the election.

So far, a record 14 Republican women have been confirmed the winners of races for seats in the U.S. House.

Ernst won re-election to a second term in the U.S. Senate by a nearly seven point margin.
