Campaign status: Won

ERNST: There are so many reasons that I am doing this. I feel that our country is at a critical juncture, and I don't like the direction that we are headed. I believe in the greatness of America, and we've got to do things differently. We together will make a difference. That's what we're going to do this election, we're going to make that difference.

MAN: [unintelligible introduction]

ERNST: Thank you. I grew up on a farm just north of Stanton, Iowa. My parents raised corn, soybeans, and, some of you may know, that we had hogs.

WOMAN: She's 100 percent supportive of all Iowa agriculture.

MAN: I support Joni because she comes across to me as a person that I can really trust.

ERNST: One reason that Iowa has done so well when so many other states are sinking is because of our Iowa agriculture.

WOMAN: She has our values.

WOMAN: She has the values that are so important to us.

ERNST: And all of our wonderful farmers that make that happen.

MAN: I've been knocking doors for Joni. Making phone calls.

MAN: She just- I can trust her.

MAN: I'm just really excited about this upcoming election.

ERNST: I appreciate your support. We're going to make it happen. We're going to take the seat back. We're going to protect Iowa agriculture.

WOMAN ON RADIO: In just over two months Iowans will go to the polls to vote for a new U.S. senator.

ERNST: It's been 30 years since we've had an open seat in the United States Senate.

[unintelligible radio talk]

ERNST: Sen. Grassley, he needs a partner in the United States senate, and I am going to be that partner for Sen. Chuck Grassley.

[unintelligible radio talk]

ERNST: We are all one team here, and we are going to make sure that we are taking the seat back in November.


WOMEN: Go, Joni!
