State Senator Joni Ernst (R-Red Oak) unveiled her first TV ad today in Iowa’s U.S. Senate Race.  The ad entitled “Squeal” takes aim at Congressman Bruce Braley and others in Washington for their big spending.  The Ernst campaign told Caffeinated Thoughts that the initial ad buy is for cable in the Des Moines market with plans to expand as the June 3rd primary approaches.

“As a mother, I want to make sure that we pass along to my daughter and her generation the same great nation we inherited. To do that, we will have to get Washington to stop borrowing .40 cents out of every dollar our government spends, and repeal and replace Bruce Braley’s Obamacare with common-sense, market-driven solutions,” said Ernst.

The ad highlights her experience growing up on a farm, and is set on a farm.  She mentions her experience castrating hogs and because of that she “knows how to cut pork.”

Here’s her ad:

 

Here is the script of the ad:

Joni:  I’m Joni Ernst. I grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm. So when I get to Washington, I’ll know how to cut pork.

VO:  Joni Ernst. Mother, soldier, conservative.

Joni:  My parents taught us to live within our means. It’s time to force Washington to do the same; to cut wasteful spending, repeal Obamacare, and balance the budget. I’m Joni Ernst and I approve this message because Washington’s full of big spenders. Let’s make ’em squeal.
