Joni Ernst, talking to people who already agree with her.
Iowa Republican Joni Ernst has finally offered an explanation for why she refused to do an endorsement meeting with the Des Moines Register: She didn't think it would endorse her, so why bother?
Republican Joni Ernst defended Tuesday her decision to abruptly cancel a meeting with the Des Moines Register Editorial Board last week, telling CNN "it didn't make sense" because she knew they would back her Democratic opponent.
"It was quite evident where they stood in this race and they were going to endorse my opponent," Ernst said in an interview at a campaign stop in Oskaloosa.
Not talking to people you think will disagree with you—what a great approach for a candidate seeking to represent the entire state! What an advertisement for how Ernst would conduct herself in the Senate!
Does that explanation also apply to the other Iowa media outlets Ernst blew off? Like the Cedar Rapids Gazette and the Dubuque Telegraph-Herald and KMEG News? I mean, KMEG News wanted an interview with her they were going to air for voters to see and assess for themselves. And KMEG is in a Republican area of the state.

Ernst has given her (unsatisfactory) explanation for blowing off the Des Moines Register
