(Des Moines, IA) Today, Republican U.S. Senate nominee Joni Ernst released a new ad, “Difference,” about her service as a Lt. Colonel in the Iowa Army National Guard.

“Running for office is another opportunity to serve my country and work for Iowans,” Joni said. “Everyone who wears our nation’s uniform values the rights and freedoms we have here in the United States. As Iowa’s next U.S. Senator, I will fight for those Iowa values and a new direction in Washington.”

The ad will begin airing in key markets across the state.

Transcript of “Difference”:

I believe in the greatness of America. So much, I’m willing to lay down my life to protect it.

There’s something about being a service member. We’ve taken that oath, to sacrifice everything, with nothing asked in return.

Threats like ISIS remind us there’s good and evil in this world. Knowing the difference, and being willing to do something about it, is what makes America, who we are.

I’m Joni Ernst and I approved this message.
