Joni Ernst Takes A Shot At Obamacare In Latest Campaign Ad

Posted: Updated:

U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst wants Iowa to give her a shot.

Ernst rolls up to a shooting range on a Harley Davidson in her latest television ad, sporting a leather jacket and pulling her purse out of the motorcycle's saddlebag.

"Conservative Joni Ernst: mom, farm girl and a lieutenant colonel who carries more than just lipstick in her purse," the narrator says as Ernst walks into the shooting range and loads a handgun. "Joni Ernst will take aim at wasteful spending. And when she sets her sights on Obamacare, Joni's going to unload."

Watch the ad above.

Ernst faces four other candidates in the Republican primary to challenge Rep. Bruce Baley, the only Democrat running to succeed retiring Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa).

In her last television ad, Ernst bragged about castrating hogs as she promised to tackle "wasteful spending" in Washington, D.C.

"Washington's full of big spenders," Ernst said in the ad. "Let's make 'em squeal."
