Businesswoman, mother, and scrappy farm kid who’s going to flip the U.S. Senate seat in Iowa. Running to put Iowa first. Join our team ⤵️
It’s official, folks. @Inside Elections just moved our race rating and Iowa is a TOSS UP. We need all hands on deck to turn this toss up into a win. It won’t be easy — McConnell is spending millions propping up @Joni Ernst. But together, we can get it done: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/tg-july-2020?refcode=tw0710&amount=18
#COVID19 has laid bare glaring racial disparities that already existed in our health care system. We can’t look away. In the Senate, I’ll fight to address the disparities that Black and Latinx Iowans face in health care access and outcomes. #IASen https://www.politico.com/news/2020/07/08/racial-disparities-coronavirus-political-divide-353226
Linemen and linewomen are on the frontlines everyday, keeping the power up and running. They're truly essential employees. This Lineman Appreciation Day, let's make sure to #ThankALineman
Thanks to this grassroots team, we raised a record-breaking $6 million in the past 3 months. That’s the most any Democrat running for Senate in Iowa has ever raised in a single quarter. Can you chip in a few bucks today to keep it going? https://secure.actblue.com/donate/tg-july-2020?refcode=tw0709
I lost my first husband when I was 24. We had a 13-month-old & another on the way. Social Security & hard-earned union benefits kept my family out of poverty. I’ll never forget the lessons of my life. That’s why I’m fighting to flip this #IASen seat. https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2020/07/can-democrat-defeat-joni-ernst-iowa/613765/
Andrew Wheeler needs to resign. It’s simply unacceptable that a former fossil fuel lobbyist is running the EPA and helping Big Oil instead of our farmers. What are you waiting for, @Joni Ernst? #IASen https://iowastartingline.com/2020/07/09/ia-sen-ernst-still-not-calling-for-wheelers-resignation/
Growing up my dad always said there are no boy jobs or girl jobs, just jobs that need to get done. Fighting for our hardworking Iowa families is one of those jobs and I am so proud to be in this fight alongside @Representative Karin Derry.
Honored to be endorsed by @Iowa AFL-CIO - Looking forward to continuing our work together for the betterment of Iowa's working families!
This was the wrong decision. Access to health care shouldn’t be up for debate. This is exactly why we need to elect senators who will fight to make sure vital health care like birth control stays between people and their doctors.

We raised a RECORD-BREAKING $6 million in the last 3 months all thanks to this grassroots team. And we did it without one dime of corporate PAC money. Flipping the Senate means flipping Iowa. McConnell & @Joni Ernst know it, too. We need to keep it up: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/tg-july-2020?refcode=tw0708&amount=18
When my first husband died, I went back to school while raising two boys as a single mom. I’ve seen how child care is a lifeline to our working parents. We MUST support them by making high-quality child care more accessible and affordable. #IASen https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/early-childhood/news/2020/04/24/483817/coronavirus-pandemic-...
When I was in Iowa Lakes Community College, my job at Pizza Hut earned me enough to pay tuition and get a beer on Friday night. We need to invest in debt-free community college and skills training so all Iowans have the opportunity to earn higher wages. Watch our #IASen ad now:
BREAKING: A brand new #IASen poll has our race WITHIN the margin of error. We can — and will — flip this seat. But it’s going to be a tough fight and Mitch McConnell is spending millions propping up @Joni Ernst. Can you chip in now to flip the Senate? https://secure.actblue.com/donate/tg-july-poll?refcode=tw0706&amount=18
Last I checked the fossil fuel lobbyist you voted for is still in charge of the EPA. And he’s still devastating our farmers. I think he should resign. Do you? #IASen
That’s right, Mayor. I’m running to flip this #IASen seat to put politics aside and fight for ALL Iowans. It’s going to be a tough fight, but together, we can get it done. Let’s do this: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/tg-july-2020?refcode=tw0706&amount=18
Iowa is a TOSS UP. @POLITICO just moved this race in our favor. With Mitch McConnell spending millions in Iowa & polls showing we’re WITHIN the margin of error, flipping this #IASen seat will be a close one. But I know we can do it. Help us get it done: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/tg-july-2020?refcode=TWpm0705&amount=18
. @Joni Ernst is an example of failed leadership. We can replace her: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/tg-july-2020?refcode=TW0705&amount=18
DANA BASH: You criticized Obama for 'failed leadership' when 2 people in the US died from Ebola. Nearly 130,000 are dead from coronavirus. So is Trump showing failed leadership? @Joni Ernst: "No. I think that the president is stepping forward."
