OPINION

Ernst and Hinson are good for farmers

Be an informed voter. Do not rely on the media or the half-truth of any political ad from either party, Google “Agricultural impact on Iowa Economy.” You will find that roughly 30 percent of Iowa’s economy and that one in every six jobs are agriculture, livestock or agriculture-related. Why is that important to know? As agriculture goes, so goes Iowa. Look which candidate has a proven track record of supporting agriculture. President Donald Trump or Joe Biden. Sen. Joni Ernst or Theresa Greenfield. Ashley Hinson or U.S. Rep. Abby Finkenauer.

Hate Trump? I don’t like his brash New York style either, but Trump has repeatedly promoted agriculture. The president got financial support for agriculture caused by the pandemic. What about his trade negotiations with Canada, Mexico and China? We are already seeing the results as China orders roll in. Why do you think farmers support Trump?

Google Joni Ernst. As President Donald Trump announced the support for agriculture he stated and I paraphrase, “Joni Ernst was the biggest thorn in my side to make sure agriculture and Iowa were heavily supported, I believe she called every day.” Google Theresa Greenfield whose parties plan destroys Iowa’s agriculture.

Google Ashley Hinton and see her record. Google Abby Finkenauer. She has supported Nancy Pelosi over 93 percent of the time. Remember Pelosi completely left agriculture out of her latest relief proposals.

Then make an informed vote.
