6th Candidate Enters GOP Senate Race

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Republican state Sen. Joni Ernst is entering the 2014 race for U.S. Senate.
   The 43-year-old from Red Oak launched a website Wednesday to reveal her plans. The website says that Washington has failed Iowa residents, who "deserve better leadership."
   Ernst serves in the Iowa National Guard. She was first elected to the state Senate in 2011 in a special election.
   Other Republicans who have declared include: Former U.S. Attorney Matt Whitaker, Sioux City talk show host Sam Clovis, attorney Paul Lunde and David Young, a former aide to Sen. Chuck Grassley. Businessman Mark Jacobs is exploring a run.
   Democratic U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley is his party's only candidate.
