Ernst Statement on Gov. Reynolds Being Selected for Republican Address Following the State of the Union

RED OAK, Iowa—U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) today released the following statement on the announcement that Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds will deliver the Republican Address to the Nation from Des Moines following the State of the Union on Tuesday, March 1:

“After more than a year under a Biden presidency, the American people have seen the consequences of failed and weak leadership and a president beholden to his party’s radical policies, leading to record-high inflation, a crisis at our southern border, rising crime, and America’s enemies on the march around the world. In Iowa, we have seen what proven leadership looks like under our governor and my friend, Kim Reynolds, someone who is cutting taxes, expanding opportunity, and standing up for our students and families. I can’t think of a better person to make the case for freedom and liberty and against the radical Biden agenda than Governor Reynolds,” said Senator Joni Ernst.
