“I grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm,” said conservative candidate for U.S. Senate Joni Ernst. “So when I get to Washington, I’ll know how to cut pork.”

Ernst describes herself as a mother and soldier who was taught to live within her means. She said “it’s time to force Washington to do the same.”
