U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), the first female combat veteran in the Senate, is leading nine of her Senate colleagues in a bipartisan delegation visit to Poland and Germany this weekend.
Ernst will be joined by Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Steve Daines (R-Mont.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Angus King (I-Maine), Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), and Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.).
The bipartisan group of 10 senators issued the following joint statement ahead of their visit to Poland and Germany:
“This strong, bipartisan delegation proves the Senate stands united in its support for Ukraine. During our time in Poland and Germany, we will have the opportunity to gain greater insight on the U.S. and NATO response through engagements with top military leaders. We will return with better insight on how Congress can and should continue to support the Ukrainian people and our NATO allies, and see firsthand the heartbreaking humanitarian impact of Putin’s war of aggression.”
Due to security concerns, further details regarding the bipartisan Congressional delegation visit cannot be released at this time.
