United States Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) said she’s in a strong position entering the 2020 campaign.

Ernst raised nearly $1.7 million in the fourth quarter and has nearly $4.9 million cash on hand. She received 85 percent of her donations from first-time donors. And, 97 percent of those donations were $100 or less. She received donations from more than 4,000 Iowans from 99 counties.

“Let’s keep pushing back on the coastal liberal insanity and Make ‘Em Squeal in Washington,” Ernst tweeted.
