Des Moines Register Endorses Ernst
DES MOINES (CBS 2/FOX 28) - One of the biggest endorsements an Iowa politician can receive has come through for State Senator Joni Ernst.
The Des Moines Register's editorial board announced they will endorse Ernst for her bid for the republican nomination in Iowa's open senate race.
The editorial board cites, along with Ernst's conservative views, her military career and her sticking to her home-grown roots as reason for the endorsement.
Ernst is in the middle of a tight race with four other republicans for their party's nomination which will be decided during the June 3rd primaries.
It is highly anticipated that the winner of that race will go on to face Democrat Bruce Braley for Iowa's open senate seat.
