GOP Candidate Fires Gun in New Ad

by Andrew Johnson

Joni Ernst is back with another eye-catching campaign ad, and this time she’s taking aim and ready to “unload” a round on Obamacare.

After sharing her pig-castrating past in a previous ad, the Iowa Republican senate candidate takes target practice to highlight just how she feels about the health-care law.

“Joni Ernst will take aim at wasteful spending, and once she sets her sights on Obamacare, Joni’s going to unload,” the narrator says as the candidate fires at a bull’s eye. “Oh, and one more thing — Joni doesn’t miss much.”

Ernst is the latest in a string of politicians to show off their marksmanship in a campaign ad. In 2010, for example, West Virginia’s Joe Manchin fired a rifle through the Cap and Trade bill. The colorful Iowan has garnered a raft of prominent endorsements, including the Senate Conservatives Fund, Michale Reagan, and just today, Senator Marco Rubio.
