Demo­crat­ic poll­ster Green­berg Quin­lan Ros­ner (D) found Rep. Bruce Bra­ley (D) and state Sen. Joni Ernst (R) neck-and-neck, tak­ing 47-46% re­spect­ively (Sept. 25-30, 800 LVS, +/-3.46%). (Politico)

ON THE TRAIL: Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) made her first trip to Iowa on Tues­day, cam­paign­ing for Ernst in Ce­dar Rap­ids at the Blue Straw­berry Cof­fee Shop. (WMUR)

ON AIR: Amer­ic­an Cross­roads is adding $1 mil­lion to their fall TV re­ser­va­tions, start­ing Oct. 14. The group has already run four ads for Ernst, and is set to spend a total of $4.5 mil­lion between Ju­ly and Elec­tion Day. (re­lease)

Bra­ley has an ad up de­fend­ing his re­cord on vet­er­ans’ is­sues. Speak­ing to the cam­era, Bra­ley says he gets up­set when he sees ads claim­ing he doesn’t care about vet­er­ans. He lists off a hand­ful of is­sues he’s worked on, in­clud­ing le­gis­la­tion to give in­cent­ives to com­pan­ies who hire vet­er­ans. (Hot­line re­port­ing)

The NR­SC is out with an ad at­tack­ing Bra­ley on im­mig­ra­tion re­form. The ad says Bra­ley voted to al­low Pres­id­ent Obama to grant “am­nesty for il­leg­al im­mig­rants” which could “make them eli­gible for tax-pay­er fun­ded be­ne­fits.” (re­lease)

The DSCC re­leased an ad say­ing Ernst “sup­ports spe­cial tax breaks for cor­por­a­tions that ship Amer­ic­an jobs over­seas.” (re­lease)
