Republican Joni Ernst is running to fill the Iowa Senate seat vacated by the retiring liberal Tom Harkin, and over the weekend Harkin warned voters not to be fooled by the GOP candidate who is “really attractive” and “sounds nice.” Harkin added, “I don’t care if she’s as good looking as Taylor Swift or as nice as Mr. Rogers, but if she votes like Michele Bachmann, she’s wrong for the state of Iowa.”
Ernst has responded to Harkin, though not directly:

Here is the latest polling news from Iowa on the Senate race between Republican and veteran Joni Ernst and Democrat Beatle Bailey Bruce Bailey Bruce Braley:
And an excerpt from the write-up:
Iowa Republican State Sen. Joni Ernst is inching ahead among likely voters in the U.S. Senate race and now has 49 percent to 45 percent for U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley, the Democrat, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Five percent remain undecided.
This compares to results of an October 23 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN- uh-pe-ack) University, showing Sen. Ernst at 48 percent and Rep. Braley at 46 percent.
Today’s results show independent voters backing Ernst 50 – 41 percent. Republicans back Ernst 90 – 4 percent. Democrats go to Braley 94 – 4 percent.
The reverse gender gap in this race continues as women back the Democratic man 50 – 42 percent, while men back the Republican woman 56 – 39 percent.
Why the war on warrior women Dems?

Tonight, clearly in a good mood, he celebrated House Speaker John Boehner’s primary victory over Tea Party challenger J.D. Winteregg:
Later, Wilcox tweeted an attack on Kentucky Senate GOP candidate Matt Bevin, who is running against Sen. Mitch McConnell:
He deleted the tweet within an hour, but (as Twitchy readers know) that trick never works.
But, hey, it’s only his personal opinion:
So why delete the tweet?
