Joni finally fights back on the renewable energy smear

Iowa Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst has (finally) demanded that six Iowa TV stations pull a "deliberately misleading" ad falsely accusing her of opposing Federal subsidies for Iowa renewable energy initiatives.

Ernst pointed out that while she is philosophically opposed to the idea of the subsidies "in a perfect world," as long as they continue she will fight to see that the Iowa initiatives are included. NextGen, the left-wing environmental group which sponsors the ad, says that Iowa voters "won't buy" the distinction.

Christopher Rants, upon whose column NextGen based the ad, says that it misrepresents what he wrote.
