Ernst, from obscurity to GOP Senate poll leader

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Voters will have plenty of candidates to choose from, as the rarity of an open U.S. Senate seat and two open House seats has attracted a host of candidates in Iowa's primary election.

Formerly little-known state Sen. Joni Ernst has emerged as the GOP favorite for the U.S. Senate nominee, leading in polls and collecting support from disparate groups. Five Republicans are vying to run against unopposed Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley in the November general election.

Braley's decision to run for Senate has prompted five Democrats and three Republicans to seek his 1st District seat.

Six Republicans are competing for the GOP nomination in the 3rd District, where incumbent Rep. Tom Latham opted to retire.
