About Sen. Joni Ernst
Joni Ernst is a mother, a soldier and a leader. From the start, she has taken on Washington and delivered on her pledge to “Make ‘em Squeal.”
In 2014, Iowans called for bold leadership. Someone who would work hard, stand up to the coastal elites, and always fight for Iowa. That is exactly what they got in Joni Ernst who became the first woman elected to represent Iowa in federal office, and the first female combat veteran to serve in the Senate. She relentlessly tackles the most pressing issues facing our country including continuing to grow the economy, cutting reckless spending, and keeping our nation safe and secure.
Joni believes accessibility, transparency and accountability are fundamental, which is why every year, she travels the state visiting every county to better serve Iowans and deliver results.
A farmers’ daughter, Joni was taught to work hard, live simply, and help her neighbors. To pay for college, she worked construction jobs during the summer with her dad and made biscuits in the mornings at Hardees.
Service is more than a word to Joni – it is who she is. She served her country both in the Army Reserves and Iowa National Guard for over 23 years, including leading a unit in the Middle East in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom that drove convoys through Kuwait and Southern Iraq. She retired in 2015 as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Iowa National Guard, having served in every leadership position from platoon leader to battalion commander.
Upon returning from her overseas deployment, Joni continued to serve her community. She was elected as Montgomery County Auditor and later to the Iowa State Senate where she helped pass the largest tax cut in Iowa history. Following a decisive election to the U.S. Senate, Joni pledged to bring the Iowa way to Washington.
When she was sworn into the Senate, Joni made her focus clear: Iowa first. It is why she prioritizes meeting with Iowans every day whether it is in the Senate or holding town halls in Iowa’s largest cities and smallest towns on her 99 county tour.
At a time of extreme partisanship, Joni pushes past the noise to advance Iowa values in Washington. Whether it is working with Democrats or Republicans, Joni has a proven record as an Iowan who works tirelessly to find a path forward toward a brighter future with opportunity for all.
