Joni Ernst, you may recall, is the Republican Senate Primary candidate in Iowa who made a big splash with her last ad, which was in stark contrast to the ad from the guy who now looks to be her opponent in the general election, Bruce Braley, of hating farmer fame.
In the latest polling, Ernst, who is an Iraq war vet, appears to have taken the lead in the primary race. Ernst was previously endorsed by Sarah Palin, as reported here at The Right Scoop.
The Free Beacon reports:
Ernst has 25 percent support among likely primary goers, followed closely by wealthy businessman Mark Jacobs with 23 percent. The other three candidates received less than 10 percent, while 40 percent are still undecided for the June 3 primary.
Ernst has a strong focus on military and foreign affairs issues, as well as cutting the fat in Washington. You can read more about Jodi here, or click here for the full report on the Suffolk University poll.
