U.S. Senator Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, speaks at the 2019 Family Leadership Summit on July 12, 2019 in West Des Moines, Iowa.

U.S. Senator Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, is set to release a new book on May 26, 2020, entitled Daughter of the Heartland: My Ode to the Country that Raised Me.

According to Amazon, Ernst’s first book will be 320 pages long and will be published by Threshold Editions, an imprint of Simon & Schuster dedicated to “provide a forum for the creative people, bedrock principles, and innovative ideas of contemporary conservatism.” They have published bestselling books from people such as Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Donald Trump, Tom Fitton, Karl Rove, Laura Ingraham, and John Bolton.

The product description reads:

The daughter of hardworking farmers, Joni Ernst has never been afraid of rolling up her sleeves and getting her hands dirty. Raised in rural Iowa, a typical day of chores involved cleaning stalls, hauling grain, and even castrating hogs. While this may sound like a far cry from a life in politics, growing up on a farm was Joni’s initiation into American values. Joni developed grit and farm-bred tenacity, attributes that served her well both as a Lieutenant Colonel in the military and as an underdog candidate in the US senate. Today, Joni challenges leaders who aren’t willing to shrug off their neatly pressed suits and get dirty—literally or figuratively.

In this inspiring memoir, Joni recounts her struggle as a woman in a boys’ club—both in the military and the senate—and how she has risen above to become a successful politician and role model. Senator Ernst is well known and respected for her willingness to hold Washington accountable and her demand for bipartisanship in a time of fierce tribalism. Daughter of the Heartland tells her incredible story in four parts, defined by the values she’s learned along the way—leadership, service, courage, and gratitude.

Written in an honest and compelling voice, Daughter of the Heartland is Joni’s inspirational story of finding her power as a champion for Iowa, a defender of our armed forces, and a voice for women.

Obviously when a U.S. Senator releases a memoir there is talk of a future presidential run and, should Ernst win re-election, I could see a potential candidacy in 2024. However, her first book is better timed to benefit her re-election bid.
