New Hampshire US Senator Kelly Ayotte, a rising star in the Republican Party, made her first visit ever Tuesday night to Iowa, home of the nation's first presidential caucus every four years.
Ayotte campaigned in Cedar Rapids for Joni Ernst, Republican candidate for a Senate seat in that state and one of the closer races in the country.
The winner in Iowa will replace Tom Harkin, a retiring, liberal Democrat who ran for president and won Iowa's caucus vote in 1988.
In 2012, Ayotte made it onto the short list of possible running mates before presidential nominee Mitt Romney chose Congressman Paul Ryan.
The Sioux City Journal first reported on Ayotte's visit.
