Ernst will preserve our basic freedoms

Joni Ernst is dedicated to preserving Americans’ basic freedoms. The National Rifle Association has rated Joni with an “A” while Bruce Braley is rated as an “F.”

Ernst consistently has demonstrated that she will stand up to an overreaching and unaffordable gun control agenda.

Braley even voted against the “Sportsmen’s Heritage Act,” a good piece of legislation that supported America’s sportsman and hunting heritage. His record is not consistent with mainstream American values.

We ought to defend and support Ernst for her levelheaded, common-sense approach to preserving our freedoms.
