Frontrunners in Iowa's Republican Nomination for U.S. Senate

May 14, 2014

State Senator Joni Ernst started out relatively unknown in a crowded field for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate. Is she now the front runner?

We look at the candidacy of Joni Ernst this week, as she gains the endorsement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the NRA. Also on the program, a tea party primary win in Nebraska, the likelihood of immigration reform before November’s election, and looking abroad, the latest crisis in Ukraine and Nigeria.

Today’s political guests include Chris Larimer, Associate Professor of Political Science at University of Northern Iowa, and Wayne Moyer, Rosenfield Professor of Political Science at Grinnell College.
