“The bottom line is that Ernst can’t run from her record of selling out our farmers to her Big Oil donors”
After Senator Joni Ernst’s speech at tonight’s RNC Convention, where she tried to defend her harmful record of failing our farmers, Iowa Democratic Party spokesperson Jeremy Busch released the following statement:
“Senator Ernst promised Iowans she’d be different – but tonight’s sad, cookie-cutter campaign speech was the mark of a tried and true politician who knows her days in Washington are numbered. The bottom line is that Ernst can’t run from her record of selling out our farmers to her Big Oil donors.
“After she voted for a fossil fuel lobbyist to use the powers of the EPA to decimate Iowa’s ethanol industry, Senator Ernst went in front of the nation to sell a lie, and desperately try to cover up her failed record of putting her Big Oil backers first in Washington. That’s about as desperate and despicable as it comes – and Senator Ernst is about to reap the results in November that she’s sowed for six years in Washington.”
