Funny 'Red Eye': Female Candidate Rides Motorcycle to Gun Range in New Ad
An Iowa state senator is making waves after a web campaign ad shows her blasting ObamaCare ... literally. The ad shows Republican Joni Ernst, who's seeking the GOP nomination to challenge Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA), riding a motorcycle to a shooting range.
"Joni Ernst will take aim at wasteful spending and once she sets her sights on Obamacare, Joni's gonna unload," the ad states, as the military veteran fires a handgun at a target.
It's not the first unusual campaign ad from Ernst, who previously highlighted her experience castrating pigs. She has won endorsements from Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney and on Monday got the support of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).
Greg Gutfeld called the ad "refreshing and scary," adding we need more female ex-military candidates.
"Putin would not know how to deal with this person," said Gutfeld.
Dana Perino joined in the debate this morning, explaining that candidates need to tell voters who they are and she thinks the message will resonate with Iowa Republicans.
"You might even like to have a beer with her. And also then she can protect you too afterward, Greg, when you get beat up in the parking lot."
