Senator Ernst mistweets Hawkeye outcome

Posted: Updated:
(KWWL) -

Iowa Republican Senator Joni Ernst sent out an inaccurate tweet following the Iowa/Michigan State game, "Congrats @hawkeyefootball on the big win! #10 #B1FCG #iowa."

However, Michigan State beat Iowa in the final minutes, 16-13.

The tweet was on Twitter for nine minutes, and had 1,458 retweets and 691 likes before it was taken down.

We reached out to the Senator's Washington office Saturday night for comment and have not heard back at this time.
