Joni Ernst, the Republican Senate candidate who received national acclaim for a campaign ad touting her background “castrating hogs on an Iowa farm,” rides her Harley Davidson to the gun range for some target practice in her latest spot.

Ernst “carries more than just lipstick in her purse,” a narrator on the ad says, adding that “once she sets her sights on Obamacare, Joni’s gonna unload.”
Ernst has a concealed carry permit in Iowa, and according to an Ernst campaign aide, the impressive accuracy wasn’t a television trick. Ernst took the shots herself that resulted in a tight spread on the target sheet, the aide said.
It’s also her motorcycle in the ad, a Harley Davidson Softail Deluxe.
Another great ad.
