Des Moines – An Iowan made the list of top five potential choices for the running mate of Donald Trump in the 2016 race for the White House.
Senator Joni Ernst, Iowa’s freshman republican senator, made the Washington Post short list.
Ernst told Local 5 in a phone interview, “Of course I would have a conversation with him. But again, it’s hypothetical. My focus is serving Iowans right now. They elected me to serve as their voice in Washington and that’s what I need to do. I need to focus on Iowa right now.”
