Fort Dodge Messenger | October 17, 2020
Iowans need to keep U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst working for them in Washington, D.C.
Since taking office in 2015, the Republican who is Iowa’s junior senator has gone to work for farmers. small business owners and veterans.
She has earned a reputation as a champion for ethanol and biodiesel, key components of the state’s agribusiness economy.
In the Senate, Ernst has worked to hold officials of the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs accountable. She has pressured the military to improve its response to complaints of sexual assault within the ranks. Standing up for troops and veterans is a mission which is of great importance to the senator, who served in the Army Reserve and Iowa Army National Guard. In 2003, she was a company commander leading convoys in Kuwait and southern Iraq. She retired from the military with the rank of lieutenant colonel.
As the COVID-19 pandemic ravaged the economy, Ernst worked to secure additional federal relief for small businesses.

Joni Ernst is a mother, soldier and a leader who has never stopped fighting for Iowa.
Her liberal opponent is former Colby Interests real-estate executive Ms. Theresa Greenfield. Ms. Greenfield, who lives in one of Iowa’s wealthiest zip codes, prioritized profits over people when she personally signed paperwork to remove mom and pop businesses for a corporate chain. Ms. Greenfield’s previous attempt at running for Congress ended in failure, with her campaign manager ultimately pleading guilty to election fraud.
