Watch Joni Ernst Thoroughly Embarrass Bruce Braley When He Tries to Lecture Her About Iraq

Last night trial attorney Bruce Braley and Iowa State Senator Joni Ernst squared off in a final debate before voters heads to the polls in November and choose their next U.S. Senator from Iowa. 

During the debate Braley, who infamously belittled farmers in the Hawkeye State, lectured Ernst about how to handle Iraq, about the option of putting U.S. ground troops back in the region and on the ongoing threat of ISIS. Ernst responded by reminding Braley she served in Iraq and that her boots were on the very ground ISIS controls today.

"I will remind you, that I have served in Iraq. My boots were on the ground now held by ISIS," Ernst said, adding that she would carefully consider the circumstances before voting to send U.S. men and women into harms way.

According to Real Clear Politics, Ernst is beating Braley by two points.
