She’s off serving her country.
Republicans are appealing to Iowans to help campaign for Joni Ernst while she’s on leave for two weeks for active duty training.
Ernst, a candidate for Iowa’s open U.S. Senate seat and a battalion commander in the Iowa Army National Guard, leaves Friday for Fort McCoy for annual training.
The Iowa Republican party expects Bruce Braley to go after Joni Ernst during this time – Braley always did like cheap shots as a political strategy* – so they’re asking for special help during the next two weeks. So if you’re a Republican from Iowa: details on how you can help here.

*You know, it’d be one thing if Bruce Braley was consistently in favor of using the IRS to target political organizations that he doesn’t like. It’d be a horrible thing, but it’d be at least an honest opinion. But this one-of-you act he’s been doing is kind of pathetic. Last time I checked: Iowans believed in the rights of freedom of assembly and petition to redress grievances.
Oops, sorry, that’s language from the First Amendment to the Constitution. Shoot, I keep forgetting that Braley and his fellow legislators have apparently never read the primary source material.
