Ernst Easily Wins GOP Senate Nomination in Iowa

Joni Ernst (R), "who highlighted her ability to shoot guns and castrate hogs to overcome disinterest in a sleepy primary election, dominated the field to become the first female GOP U.S. Senate nominee in Iowa history," the Des Moines Register reports.

"The 43-year-old farmer's daughter turned state senator and military commander blew past the 35% necessary to claim victory over her four competitors, including retired businessman Mark Jacobs, who tried to overpower the rest of the field by self-funding his campaign with millions from his own wealth. With some precincts still out, Jacobs appeared to have fallen to a disappointing third place. He quickly pledged 100 percent support to Ernst."
