Conservative favorite Nikki Haley joined Senator Joni Ernst to kick off her 2020 Senate campaign in a "Roast and Ride." Nikki Haley will be a sought after figure on the campaign trail in 2020 after an outstanding term as UN Ambassador. She is in high demand and will play a major role in helping conservative women keep these seats and hopefully win more.
Remember Senator Ernst has a long record of accomplishment herself. She spent decades in the Iowa Army National Guard, retiring as Lt. Colonel.
Iowa will be a crucial state to keep the Senate seat and win the Presidency. Democrats made inroads in Congress in 2018 so the GOP must hold Iowa to keep the Senate.
One Democrat who announced and is a favorite is a woman who had to suspend her campaign for Congress two years ago because of allegations of election fraud. Democrats are going to have to do a lot better than that to beat Joni. Read on for more from Joni and Nikki Haley.

Sen. Joni Ernst is expecting a tough challenge from Democrats in her upcoming re-election campaign for U.S. Senate. But in Des Moines Saturday, she said she was confident taking them on.
“I know this is an important seat,” she said. “I’m going to make them fight for it, and they are going to fail.”
It’s a fight she started at her fifth annual Roast and Ride, traveling on motorcycle from Des Moines to Boone on a ride honoring veterans. Over 250 bikers joined her on the ride, a 49-mile route past Camp Dodge, where Ernst spent time as an Iowa National Guard soldier...
Former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley expressed her sympathy for Iowans who have to deal with a barrage of “liberals, radicals and socialists,” her description of the Democratic presidential candidates coming for the 2020 caucus season.
Haley also talked about how important it was for Iowans to support Ernst — and all Republicans — in the 2020 elections. If Iowa Republicans don’t turn out, it means the Green New Deal and other “radical” policies will take over Washington, she said.
“Iowa is crucial,” she said. “We have to have it, and we have to double our efforts next year to get President Trump elected.”
The ride was in support of veterans, with all proceeds from the event going to Retrieving Freedom, an organization that provides service dogs to veterans and autistic children. Lyle Veach, an army veteran and longtime biker, said this year was his first time participating in the Roast and Ride, traveling alongside his wife, Cathy, and his son.
There aren't many opportunities to do one of his favorite things — riding his motorcycle — while supporting veterans and a "worthwhile" politician, he said. He's been riding since 1963 and said he wished there were events like this when he was coming home from serving in Vietnam.
"It's long overdue, supporting veterans like this," he said. "There's a lot that has to be changed yet, and the current president is trying to change a lot of it. And Joni Ernst is a part of that too."
Ernst said helping veterans and all Iowans means supporting Republicans in the upcoming election. She said Democrats threaten Iowans' way of life, which is why she wants to return to the U.S. Senate.
