View Transcript

Join Hudson Institute for the launch of its Center on Europe and Eurasia with a conversation featuring Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa. A member of the Committee on Armed Services and a veteran of the Iowa Army National Guard, Senator Ernst is one of America’s foremost national security leaders on US alliances and Europe. As a college student, Ernst participated in an agricultural exchange to Ukraine when it was still part of the Soviet Union. As a senator, she has led or participated in several congressional delegations to Europe. Last week, she led a bipartisan effort with 14 of her colleagues urging the Biden administration to send MQ-1C Gray Eagle drones to Ukraine.

Through her knowledge of Ukraine and her commitment to America’s alliances, Senator Ernst embodies the qualities that will shape the center’s work. Please join Peter Rough, director of the new center, at 10:00 a.m. EST on Friday, December 2, for his discussion with Senator Ernst on the state of Europe, transatlantic relations, and how to best meet America’s interests in the decades to come.
