AS SOME OF HER FELLOW REPUBLICANS CALL FOR DEEP CUTS OR AN END TO U-S AID FOR UKRAINE, IOWA SENATOR JONI ERNST SUGGESTS THAT WOULD BE A DANGEROUS STEP.

EU1 OC….REPERCUSSIONS? :18

THE REPUBLICAN POISED TO BE HOUSE SPEAKER IF THE G-O-P GAINS CONTROL OF CONGRESS NEXT YEAR SAYS THE G-O-P WILL NO LONGER GIVE THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION A BLANK CHECK FOR THE WAR IN UKRAINE — AND WILL INSIST ON A PLAN FOR ENDING THE CONFLICT.

WHILE ERNST AGREES UNLIMITED SPENDING ON THE WAR EFFORT IS UNWISE, SHE SAYS THE U.S. NEEDS TO KEEP SUPPORTING UKRAINE.

EU2 OC….UKRAINE :14

HOWEVER, ERNST SAYS THAT DOESN’T MEAN CONGRESS SHOULD SPECIFY EXACTLY WHAT WEAPONS AND MILITARY EQUIPMENT IS SHIPPED THERE.

EU3 OC….THEY NEED IT :05

THE U-S DEFENSE DEPARTMENT IS COORDINATING ALL THE MILITARY AID THE UNITED STATES AND ITS ALLIES ARE PROVIDING UKRAINE IN ITS FIGHT AGAINST PUTIN’S MILITARY.

EU4 OC….DO THAT :11

IN 2014, ERNST BECAME THE FIRST FEMALE COMBAT VETERAN ELECTED TO THE U.S. SENATE. IN LATE 2015, SHE RETIRED FROM THE IOWA NATIONAL GUARD AS A LIEUTENANT COLONEL.

SHE IS NOW PART OF SENATE G-O-P LEADERSHIP AS THE VICE CHAIRMAN OF THE SENATE REPUBLICAN CONFERENCE.
