Joni Ernst ‘Really Interested’ to See How Impeachment Trial Influences Iowa Race: Will Voters Support Biden?
As senators spoke to reporters tonight before the impeachment trial resumed, Senator Joni Ernst (R- IA) went ahead and wondered out loud how much the arguments today would impact the Iowa caucuses.
ERNST: "IA caucuses are this next Monday evening. And I'm really interested to see how this discussion today informs and influences the Iowa caucus voters, those Demcaucus goers. Will they be supporting VP Biden at this point?"

“Iowa caucuses, folks. Iowa caucuses are this next Monday evening, and I’m really interested to see how this discussion today informs and influences the Iowa caucus voters, those Democratic caucus goers. Will the be supporting Vice President Biden at this point?” she said to reporters.
Ernst is already getting called out for her blunt comments speculating about how the comments in the president’s impeachment trial ripping Joe and Hunter Biden would go over with voters:
Joni Ernst is going all-in on Trump with this trial.
First she mocked the lack of evidence after voting 11 to block witnesses or subpoenas for evidence, and now she's hoping that Trump's impeachment trial will hurt Biden, which was Trump's goal all along with Ukraine. https://t.co/uP8BHQlPk8

Incredible. Admitting openly that Trump and team are using this impeachment trial to take down Biden in Iowa. https://t.co/JPJjeHTdee

Line from Trump team thus far has been that interest in Ukraine investigations was not politically motivated and was borne out of the president's desire to root out corruption in Ukraine.
