Big names continue to roll into the state campaigning alongside candidates in the race for US Senate.
Friday, it was First Lady Michelle Obama speaking on behalf of Democrat Bruce Braley. Sunday evening, it was former presidential candidate Mitt Romney showing his support for Republican Joni Ernst.
"It’s not just her political philosophy and changing the course in Washington and making them squeal as they deserve to squeal, but also because she's a person of unprecedented character and ability,” Romney said about Ernst.
Romney quickly addressed the elephant in the room saying he wasn’t running for office.
He then attacked the President Obama’s healthcare plan and what he called a lack of action in the Middle East.
That set the state for Joni Ernst who attacked her opponent Bruce Braley on his foreign affairs experience.
"Two days ago, he put out a release saying we need to bring congress back because I think this ISIS situation is really serious. No kidding, Congressman Braley. Where were you two years ago,” said Ernst.
Romney will join Ernst at an event Monday in Cedar Rapids.
