Senator Joni Ernst spoke with reporters in Washington, D.C. moments ago, revealing a few details about her recent meeting with presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
According to a series of tweets from CNN’s Betsy Klein, Ernst has “not received documents” from the Trump campaign that would be filled out by prospective vice presidential candidates. Trump has begun campaigning with people like Newt Gingrich who are rumored to be on Trump’s list of potential running mates.
Some prominent Republicans have said they won’t attend the Republican National Convention in Cleveland later this month. Ohio Governor John Kasich will not speak at the event, because he hasn’t endorsed Trump, but Ernst told CNN she’s not only willing to speak at the convention, she thinks it would be “a nice opportunity.”
According to Klein’s tweets, Ernst indicated she and Trump discussed Iowa during their recent meeting and she encouraged Trump to get out and talk to as many Iowans as possible before Election Day. Iowa will be one of the few “swing” states in the General Election.
