U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin made news over the weekend when he warned voters not to be fooled by the GOP candidate competing to replace him who is “really attractive” and “sounds nice.”
The retiring Democrat was hoping to turn votes away from Republican Joni Ernst, who is vying for his Iowa seat and is ahead in many polls.
“I don’t care if she’s as good looking as Taylor Swift or as nice as Mr. Rogers, but if she votes like Michele Bachmann, she’s wrong for the state of Iowa.”
Clever woman that she is, Ernst sent an indirect message to Harkin in a tweet that didn’t go unnoticed:
