Vote for Joni Ernst, she castrates pigs

Another, um, interesting US political advert. This one promotes Joni Ernst for Senate:

As The Guardian reported of the advert:

The ad which introduced pig castration to American politics and helped clinch the Republicans’ Senate majority was conceived by a public relations guru who grew up in a liberal bastion far from any farm.

Todd Harris, a veteran Republican strategist from California, helped to transform Joni Ernst’s campaign in Iowa by seizing on a biographical detail that captured the public’s imagination and set her on the road to Washington.

“It got people to take notice of her,” Harris said, clutching a Bud Light as Republicans whooped and celebrated around him in Des Moines on Tuesday night. “It was by no means unanimous that we should run this ad but Joni believed in it.”
