An Iowa GOP Senate candidate argued in a new ad that her experience castrating hogs on a farm makes her ready to cut pork spending in Washington D.C.

“I’m Joni Ernst. I grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm so when I get to Washington, I’ll know how to cut pork,” state Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) said in the ad, titled “Squeal.”

The ad, released Tuesday, features Ernst describing her conservative bona fides. A few clips in the ad are of pigs in a barn.

“My parents taught parents taught us to live within our means. It’s time to force Washington to do the same, to cut wasteful spending, repeal Obamacare, and balance the budget,” Ernst continued.

Ernst ends the ad promising to make big spending lawmakers “squeal.”

“I’m Joni Ernst and I approve this message because Washington’s full of big spenders. Let’s make ’em squeal,” Ernst ended the ad saying.
