Fox Business highlighted Senator Ernst’s effort, writing, “’A sitting governor who harasses and abuses women on his own staff and members of law enforcement must be held accountable, and shouldn’t be getting a dime of Iowa taxpayer money,’ Sen. Ernst said in a statement to Fox News on Tuesday. ‘Here’s a good place to start.’”
