Republicans Win Control Of The U.S. Senate | CNBC

#midtermelections #republicanswin #rep #everettrosenfeld @EV_RosenfeldThe U.S. Senate

According to Everett Rosenfeld 2014, “The Republican Party has taken control of the Senate, holding at least 52 seats with several more races still left to call.
The pendulum officially swung in favor of the Republicans with the projections that Joni Ernst had won an Iowa Senate seat, defeating Democrat Bruce Braley. The Republican Party also renewed its lease on the House on Tuesday night. But Tuesday night’s victories may just be the beginning for the Republicans, with some experts saying that proving themselves as capable senatorial leaders may be more challenging than actually winning the chamber.

“That’s not victory, that’s step one,” said American Enterprise Institute resident scholar Michael Strain of a GOP Senate win. “Victory comes in demonstrating to the American people that when the Republicans hold a majority in both houses, they can come together by passing a policy vision that reflects conservative principles and will help the lives of American citizens. That’s hard, and that’s a challenge.”” Read more >


Former Pig Castrator Joni Ernst Poised To Win Iowa Senate Seat For Republicans | US News | The Guardian

#joniernst #midterms2014 #theguardian #senaterace #iowa #rorycarroll

According to Rory Carroll 2014, “Joni Ernst became famous by gazing into a camera and boasting of castrating hogs on the Iowa farm where she grew up. “So when I get to Washington, I’ll know how to cut pork,” she said. The campaign ad Squeal showed images of pigs, then came her punchline. “Washington is full of big spenders. Let’s make ‘em squeal.” Even Democrats laughed. Late-night comedians spoofed it. Few, initially, took it seriously. This was back in March. Ernst was an obscure, one-term state senator scrambling in a primary against rival Republicans for the right to run for the US senate against a favoured Democrat. Now, on the eve of Tuesday’s midterm election, Democrats don’t see the joke. Ernst, 44, appears poised to win Iowa’s senate race – and possibly to deliver a senate majority to the GOP.” Read more >

@Calliste I love this Midterm election ad by Joni Ernst. Very funny, cool and true. Good stuff. Joni’s got my vote.
