Ernst Optomistic on NAFTA Negotiations

Iowa Senator Joni Ernst says she expects to hear something soon on the trade deal with Mexico. The Republican from Red Oak says she knows everyone is anxious to hear something.

Ernst says she doesn’t know all the details of what is being discussed — but she says it is important to make progress.

Ernst says the Mexico deal could be the path for other trade deals to come together.

Ernst made her comments during her weekly conference call with reporters.
