DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Sen. Joni Ernst is going to treat Republican presidential hopefuls to a pig roast and a motorcycle ride.

The freshman senator’s political action committee on Monday announced details for a fundraiser they are calling the “Roast and Ride.” The event will be held on June 6.

The confirmed attendees are Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and former executive Carly Fiorina.

Ernst will lead a motorcycle ride from Des Moines to the event site in Boone for those who wish to participate. Tickets to the fundraiser are $30 for adults and $12 for children.

Ernst says she hopes to hear “fresh ideas and vision” from the candidates.
