RED OAK, Iowa – U.S. Senator Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, released her first ad in Iowa’s U.S. Senate Race. 

The ad, entitled “All Over,” highlights her military background and her fight to reduce our dependence on communist China, including reinventing America’s supply chain and bringing critical jobs and manufacturing back home.

Ernst served as a logistics officer in the Army Reserves and Iowa Army National Guard. Near the end of her 23-year-long career, she served as the commander of the 185th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, a logistics battalion within the Iowa Army National Gaurd. Ernst is the U.S. Senate’s first female combat veteran, having served as the company commander of the 1168th Transportation Company during Operation Iraqi Freedom for 12 months in 2003 and 2004. She retired with the rank of lieutenant colonel in 2015. 

“As a military logistics expert, Joni Ernst led countless convoys through Kuwait and Iraq to keep our troops supplied. Joni is the only candidate in the race with the leadership and know-how to reduce our dependence on China and bring our supply chain back home to the U.S.,” said Brendan Conley, Communications Director for the Ernst campaign. “While Joni and President Trump remain tough on China, Theresa Greenfield’s silence continues to shows just how unprepared she is to lead at this critical moment.”

We drove our trucks all over Baghdad, through terror cells and IEDs.

But we kept the supply chain going, because American lives counted on it.

Today, we face a different supply chain threat. 

We rely on communist China for far too much, from technology to medicine. So I’m fighting to bring it home.

I’m Joni Ernst. I approve this message because saving America, starts with made in America.
