Admiral Mike Franken

DES MOINES – Thursday evening, The Des Moines Register announced their endorsement of Admiral Mike Franken for U.S. Senate.

“The retired three-star admiral is the candidate who is the most qualified, experienced and ready to hit the ground running,” The Register wrote. “As the nation faces unprecedented health and economic crises, he has come back to Iowa just as the times demand someone like him.”

Franken wrote:

“On behalf of the Franken for Iowa campaign staff, our army of supporters, and Iowans everywhere, we are honored and humbled to earn the most treasured endorsement of Iowa’s flagship newspaper. I will strive to best represent Iowa’s future this November and beyond.”

“This is an enormous win for our campaign” said communications director Aaron Slutkin. “The Des Moines Register editorial board is the ultimate test of a candidate, and Admiral Mike passed with flying colors. Their endorsement makes it clear why Mike is the

Incumbent Joni Ernst

most qualified U.S. Senate candidate in a generation and the best candidate to beat Joni Ernst.”

Slutkin continued: “The Des Moines Register’s endorsement is another sign of Mike Franken’s surge in Iowa. In addition to his ubiquitous television ads, Admiral Mike picked up other key endorsements this week from Black Hawk County Sheriff Tony Thompson, former U.S. Senate candidate Cal Woods, and U.S. Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin (MI-8).”

    There is no way I am voting for anyone who wants to destroy our country. That would mean any Democrat.

    Make sure their is no talk of a sexual offense against women. Because they’ll bring it up to shame and drive him away from. Are women the best qualified for political office. No, most certainly not. Thank God that the virus put a stop to those discriminating marches. Shame is used as control in a community. Everybody knows that this is all related to Hillary losing the election. America is bigger than women. It’s bigger than men. It’s about truth and justice. And FREEDOM from destructive citizens to OUR democracy.

        “Our liberties” is freedom from the stupidity of others. Wear a mask.

      I agree and Matt likes to post the worst picture ever taken of Joni Ernst.

      Well, bright eyes, if Joni Ernst is a Republican, then I would guess that Franken is a Democrat. Not rocket science.

        Thanks captain obvious. But it’s possible he’s an Independent and sometimes people with the same party affiliation run against each other. So go fist yourself.
