BOONE, Iowa – Senator Joni Ernst’s answer to former Senator Tom Harkin’s annual Steak Fry fundraiser is called the ‘Roast and Ride’ – and now, its date and location are set in stone.
In January, Sen. Ernst announced the date to be June 6, 2015. The senator revealed the location Wednesday to be the Central Iowa Expo grounds in Boone, according to a news release. The Central Iowa Expo grounds is also home to the Farm Progress Show.
Sen. Ernst says the Roast and Ride will feature family-friendly activities and entertainment, and Republican presidential hopefuls are sure to flock to Iowa for the event ahead of the 2016 caucuses, as well. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who attended the Iowa Ag Summit last weekend, already agreed to attend Sen. Ernst’s event at the end of January.
