Iowa Republican Senate Candidate Still Thinks Iraq Had WMDs

Rising Iowa Senate candidate Joni Ernst told the Des Moines Register board in a meeting last Friday she still believes Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

"I do have reason to believe there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq," Ernst said.

Here's the full video:

"We don't know that there were weapons on the ground when we went in. However, I do have reason to believe there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. That was the intelligence that was operated on. I have reason to believe there was weapons of mass destruction. My husband served in Saudi Arabia as an Army Central Command sergeant major for a year and that's a hot-button topic in that area."
