RED OAK (AP) -

Sen. Joni Ernst says she'll start her 2015 tour of all 99 Iowa counties this weekend.

During a call with news reporters Wednesday, Ernst said she'll be in her home town of Red Oak on Saturday. The appearance will mark the beginning of an annual effort to visit all the counties in Iowa every year.

Other Iowa politicians that make this effort each year include Sen. Chuck Grassley and Gov. Terry Branstad.

The Republican Ernst was recently sworn in for her first term in the Senate.
