Final Kick In Iowa Races

Posted: Updated:

The big question of who will be the next president will finally be answered tomorrow, but two important races here in Iowa will also have a major impact on Washington DC.

The race is on and candidates are using their final day to push their messages.

In Cedar Rapids, Monica Vernon casting her own ballot, encouraging all Iowans to follow her lead.

"That's what it's all about, it's about being an American," she says.

Her opponent and Incumbent Rod Blum echoing that same message, saying every vote counts while making a stop in Waterloo today.

Blum saying, "We cannot have a country that just has rich people and poor people. The strength of America has always been and always will be in our middle class."

By his side, Senator Chuck Grassley who is up for re-election against Patty Judge.

Some other big political names joining them for support like Rick Santorum and Senator Joni Ernst, who both encouraged Iowans to vote for Donald Trump. While in Sioux City this past weekend, Trump complimented Ernst saying she was on his VP list.

"It wasn't me...she felt she needed more seasoning, " Trump said.

Although flattered, Senator Ernst told KWWL she declined Trump's request because there's still more she wants to accomplish as Senator.

"I truly enjoy what I am doing for the people of Iowa in the United States Senate. I love Iowans and I love what I am able to accomplish for them. I work for the best people in the world and that's the people of Iowa," Ernst says.
