Tied to Trump fate, Ernst walks tightrope in dead heat Iowa
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa Senator Joni Ernst has supported Donald Trump throughout his presidency.
As President Trump visits Iowa Wednesday, Ernst is finding her re-election bid tied directly to his in a state where the president’s support has eroded as voters have harshly assessed his handling of the pandemic.
Ernst is locked in a close race against Democratic challenger Theresa Greenfield.
She is now balancing her support for the president with a more moderate tone as Iowa voters show strong signs of returning to their decades-long swing-state form.
