DES MOINES, Iowa — Democrat Bruce Braley has released his first ad targeting Republican Joni Ernst less than a day after voters picked Ernst in the primary election. Ernst and Braley are battling for Iowa’s U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Tom Harkin.
The ad released Wednesday is titled “Peep.” It talks about Ernst’s successful pig castration and cutting pork ad used during the primary race. The ad says that Ernst never sponsored a bill to cut pork when she was in the Iowa Senate.
“Joni Ernst’s ads are hard to forget, but her record just doesn’t cut it,” says the Braley ad. Click here to view the ad.
