Joni Ernst, a candidate for U.S. Senate from Iowa, made a big splash this week with what some are calling “the greatest opening line in the history of campaign commercials.”
“I grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm, so in Washington, I’ll know how to cut pork.”

Ernst is one of five Iowa Republicans running in the U.S. Senate primary. The winner will face off in the general against Democrat Congressman Bruce Braley who currently represents Iowa’s 1st Congressional District.
