Senate Majority PAC Launches New Iowa TV Ad on Joni Ernst’s Corruption Scandal

Watch “Trail” HERE

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Senate Majority PAC released a new television ad in Iowa laying out the trail of evidence that vulnerable Republican Senator Joni Ernst has changed in Washington given the ongoing corruption scandal that plagues her campaign.

Investigators have found that Senator Ernst’s campaign knowingly accepted prohibited contributions – over $37k – including illegal donations from corporations. Since then, Ernst’s campaign has been forced to pay the largest fine ever for an Iowa politician. Now, new evidence reveals Ernst may have broken anti-corruption laws by illegally coordinating with a dark money group.

The television ad is a part of Senate Majority PAC’s seven-figure buy that will air statewide.

“Joni Ernst has become the corrupt Washington politician she warned Iowa about six years ago,” said Senate Majority PAC spokesperson Matt Corridoni. “Ernst’s trail of alleged Illegal donations, ethics violations, and blatant coordination with dark money groups show just how desperate Joni is to stay in Washington. Iowans know firsthand that Joni has sold them out, that’s why she’s down in public polls and fundraising three months out from Election Day.”
