MARSHALLTOWN, IOWA - U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) today completed her first 99 county tour across Iowa as a United States Senator with a visit to Central Iowa Healthcare in Marshall County. The Iowa Senator launched the tour with a town meeting in her hometown of Red Oak, Iowa in January.

“Iowans know what is best for Iowa, which is why I launched a 99 county tour to visit with as many fellow Iowans as possible, every year. This tour has been invaluable to hear directly from folks about the issues impacting their everyday life.

“Over the past year, I have held town meetings across Iowa, and visited manufacturers, agricultural operations, small business, hospitals, schools, and more. Here in Iowa, we work with our neighbors to find solutions to the many problems we face. For the last ten months, I’ve been working to bring this commonsense approach to Washington, rather than resorting to the political theatre that consumes Congress.

“I am dedicated to working for all Iowans; I look forward to continuing to bring their ideas and feedback to Washington to craft and implement real solutions as we chart a new path forward.”
