Mitt Romney is heading back to Iowa to help GOP Senate candidate Joni Ernst. In what will be his first campaign visit since the 2012 presidential election, Romney will appear in Cedar Rapids and Davenport for Ernst on May 30 — ahead of the Republican primary on June 3. Ernst has been picking up steam because of her irreverent campaign ads, including one in which she talks about growing up on a farm castrating hogs. She's received support from such national figures as Tea Party favorite Sarah Palin and the NRA.
