She said Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is not a friend to agriculture and is pushing the progressive-backed Green New Deal, which would destroy the industry — not just in her state — but all over the nation.

“Knowing we have an ally in the White House is important,” said Ms. Ernst, who is also up for reelection in November.
