On the Heels of Completing 99 County Tour, Ernst Says Iowans Concerned by Democrats’ Reckless Spending, Afghanistan Disaster

WASHINGTON-On the heels of completing her seventh annual 99 County Tour, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) today said that Iowans are concerned by the Democrats' reckless tax-and-spending spree and its effects on their pocketbooks. Ernst, a combat veteran of the Global War on Terrorism, also said that Iowans were heartbroken by President Biden's disastrous withdrawal of Afghanistan-noting that one of the Marines killed in the Kabul airport bombing, Marine Corporal Daegan William-Tyeler Page, was from her hometown of Red Oak, Iowa.
