She won, everybody; Joni Ernst, the woman who willingly rejects reality and who would sponsor a full-on personhood bill won the bid for Senator in Iowa and, as a result, will now forever tarnish the name of that state as the first female Iowan to head to Senate.
Ernst will fill the seat that’s currently occupied by Senator Tom Harkin. Harkin announced that he would be returning at the end of his term in 2015, and has been serving in the Senate since 1985. While polls shows her pulling ahead, a poll that was released by the Des Moines Register shows her with a seven point lead.
Ernst will be coming to town in January, when she’s sworn into the Senate.
I wonder how much gerrymandering the GOP had to do in order to get her in. Probably not much, since they grow bumper crops of crazy like corn out in the “heartland.”
