IA-SEN: Ernst Goes To Nebraska For Trump, Gets Snubbed

A week out from Election Day, Sen. Joni Ernst spent her first day back from D.C. after the Supreme Court nomination vote traveling across the state line to Nebraska for a large Donald Trump rally in Omaha. Aside from a very quick shout-out from stage from the President, she appears to have gotten nothing out of it.

Itís a bit peculiar for a candidate for statewide office to use some of the few remaining hours before the election attending a campaign rally in a different state. Especially so for Ernst who missed out on many potential in-person campaigning days in Iowa due to the Amy Coney Barrett hearings.

Obviously, the Omaha airport is right next to Iowa, so none of this is that big a deal, but Ernstís campaign team acted utterly outraged online today at anyone merely pointing out that she would be in Nebraska. How ridiculous to question it, they argued, given that the Omaha media market covers a chunk of Southwest Iowa. Getting on TV, even if youíre in Nebraska, still means Iowans see you.

Thatís certainly true. But it only helps if the candidate actually, you know, appears on stage during the event. Even if that section doesnít get featured, Ernst would still have gotten in front of the decent number of Iowans who attended the rally.

3. Little Joannie can Fry them up in a pan...

I can wash out forty four pairs of socks and have 'em hangin' out on the line
I can starch and iron two dozens shirts 'fore you can count from one to nine
I can scoop up a great big dipper full of lard from the drippin's can
Throw it in the skillet, go out and do my shopping, be back before it melts in the pan
'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again
I can rub and scrub til this old house is shinin' like a dime
Feed the baby, grease the car, and powder my face at the same time
Get all dressed up, go out and swing 'til four A.M. and then
Lay down at five, jump up at six, and start all over again
'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again
If you come to me sickly you know I'm gonna make you well
If you come to me all hexed up you know I'mÖ
I got a twenty dollar gold piece says there ain't nothing I can't do
I can make a dress out of a feed bag and I can make a man out of you
'Cause I'm a woman! A W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again
'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, and that's all

2. Did Ernst at least get to ride on the bus? Or is she lost in the field?

4. She lost one of her soxes

She found her bread bag stuck to a barbed wire fence just right of Red Oak.

5. Curiouser and curiouser. There's one electoral vote in Nebraska up for grabs.

There are 5 total - 4 are pretty much guaranteed to go to Trump.

So Trump's rally & Ernst's appearance are focused on getting electoral vote #5 (that has only gone to a Democratic candidate once - Obama 2008).

None of the scenarios for an electoral win on 538 are 1 vote from a Trump victory - so it's hard to tell why he is fighting for 1 vote (other than to spite Obama, who won it once)
