Last year, at a forum sponsored by National Review, U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst explained her conservative values — including her belief in limited government, and a strong national defense. Ernst, who grew up on a farm in Iowa, is a commander in the Iowa National Guard and has led men and women in combat areas. She has been endorsed by GING-PAC and has a good chance of being the next U.S. Senator from Iowa in November.
GING-PAC endorsed Senate candidate Joni Ernst is moving toward victory in her campaign to replace retiring leftist Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA). Roll Call recently featured Ernst and her liberal opponent Congressman Bruce Braley. Braley was expected to win Harkin’s seat, but after Ernst aired a TV ad that showed him referring to Sen. Charles Grassley as “a farmer from Iowa who never went to law school,” Braley’s expectation of victory began to slip away.
“Joni [Ernst] would help us retake the Senate, but she’s a special candidate. I wish we had 10 Joni Ernsts running around the country. She’s a unique candidate, has incredible credibility when it comes to service to our country—both in uniform and here in the state of Iowa, and we need to send her to the United States Senate. I’m just imploring the people of Iowa to do everything they can to send her to the U.S. Senate.”
“The problem with America today is that Washington is full of liberals who think government is the solution to every problem. They think that nothing can be solved unless Washington is involved,” she said. “And so they grow our government, every year making it more intrusive and more involved in our lives. Today, government tells us what doctors to see, what kind of light bulbs to use, and in some places, even how much soda we can drink.”
Iowa State Senator Joni Ernst is endorsed by GING-PAC to become the next U.S. Senator from Iowa.
Ernst will be replacing leftist Tom Harkin who has spent far too long in the Senate – and has been a lockstep follower of Barack Hussein Obama and Harry Reid.
Ernst is a principled social conservative and is conservative on economic and national security issues.
The Government Is Not God Political Action Committee (GING-PAC) has endorsed Sam Clovis for the U.S. Senate. Clovis will be fighting to replace the seat currently held by liberal Sen. Tom Harkin who is not seeking another term in office. Sam Clovis currently serving as a tenured professor at a small liberal arts college in northwest Iowa. He is an Air Force Academy graduate who earned a political science degree and spent 25 years in the Air Force as a fighter pilot.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was in Iowa yesterday to be a keynote speaker at the Iowa Christian Home Educators conference.
During his speech, he stated: “We should see a thousand flowers bloom [in education]. I’m convinced school choice is the civil rights issue of the 21st century. Education is foundational to every other challenge you’ve got.”
Texas Senator Ted Cruz, (R) a GING-PAC endorsed lawmaker is in Iowa today at the Iowa Renewal Project, a gathering of conservative pastors.
David Lane, who heads up the renewal project says “Our country’s going to hell because pastors won’t lead. The goal is to march an army.”
Iowa Republican Steve King has a target on his back this election cycle. Aiming to unseat him is the SEIU – a gaggle of Obama thugs as well as the labor union AFSCME and the Democratic House Majority PAC. These thugs are pooling their resources to buy $400,000 of negative ads against King in Des
