Braley And Reid Attack Joni Ernst While She’s Serving With The Iowa Army National Guard

DES MOINES – With Lt. Colonel Joni Ernst in her annual two-week training with the Iowa Army National Guard, Politico is reporting that Bruce Braley is having Harry Reid’s Senate Majority PAC viciously attack his opponent.

It’s worth remembering that Braley and Reid proudly supported efforts to cut off funding for our troops while they were serving in Iraq, so this latest attack is just business as usual for them.

“After voting to cut off funds to our troops in Iraq, it’s no surprise that Bruce Braley is having Harry Reid’s Super PAC smear Joni Ernst while she’s in training with the Iowa Army National Guard,” said Iowa Republican Party spokesman Jahan Wilcox.  “After mocking farmers in Iowa, Braley and his team are desperate and it’s clear nothing is out of bounds as they attempt to teardown Iowa’s Joni Ernst.”
