Senate candidate says she’ll make those in DC ‘squeal’: ‘I grew up castrating hogs’

Bacon anyone?

U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst  is trying to win over Republicans in Iowa in a six-way primary. This ad should get some attention.

Weekly Standard profiled the former farm girl turned seasoned lawmaker and said, in part:

Born and raised on a small farm in southwest Iowa, the mother of three served in Iraq as an Iowa National Guard battalion commander from 2003 to 2004. She rides a motorcycle (a 2009 Harley-Davidson Softail Deluxe) and has a permit to carry a concealed weapon (she likes to alternate between a Smith & Wesson 9mm and a .380 as her pistol of choice). Now serving her fourth year in the state senate, Ernst has positioned herself as a U.S. Senate candidate who could unite the Tea Party and the GOP establishment.
