Harkin on Ernst's Late Iowa Rally: Because 'She Is Really Attractive'

Harkin on Ernst's Late Iowa Rally: Because 'She Is Really Attractive'

In an appearance at the Story Co., IA Democratic Party’s fall barbecue last week held in his honor, outgoing Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) remarked on Republican senate hopeful Jodi Ernst’s late rally headed into Election Day showing her with a lead over her Democratic opponent Bruce Braley in polls.

According to the retiring Democrat, much of it has to do with Ernst’s looks.

“In this senate race, I’ve been watching some of these ads,” Harkin said. “And there’s sort of this sense that, ‘Well, I hear so much about Joni Ernst. She is really attractive, and she sounds nice.’”

“Well I got to thinking about that. 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.”
