The Republicans have done it.
They have taken over the Senate and we can thank Iowa’s Joni Ernst for it.
With 64% of the vote in, Ernst has 50% compared to 46% for Bruce Braley. Or if Michelle Obama is talking it’s Bruce Bailey. Whatever his surname, a word of advice for Democrats. If you’re running in Iowa, don’t insult farmers.
Ernst wins the seat vacated by longtime Democrat Senator Tom Harkin.
If that wasn’t enough, Thom Tillis has ousted Kay Hagan in North Carolina.
Can Republicans add seats in Virginia and Alaska? And don’t count out New Hampshire.
