Joni Ernst Reports for National Guard Duty 2 Days After Election

Joni Ernst
Pol Light Moment #122 occurred on November 6, 2014, when Joni Ernst reported for National Guard service two days after she was elected as the first woman to the Senate in Iowa. Joni Ernst has served as a United States Senator from Iowa since 2015. From 2011-2014, Joni Ernst served in the Iowa State Senate representing the 12th District.

Lt. Col. Joni Ernst joined the National Guard in 1993. She is also a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom (Independent Journal, Victoria Taft, What Newly Elected Senator Joni Ernst Did Two Days After the Election Tells Us All About Her Character).

After winning election to the United States Senate, Ernst reported to her base on November 6, 2014, for two days of training with the 185th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion (National Review, Benny Johson, Iowa's New Senator -Elect Has Other Duties Before She Heads to Washington, November 7, 2014).

Pol Light does not endorse political candidates. We present a brighter side to politics when they are found on either side of the aisle. We don't have to agree with all of a person's politics to recognize these bright moments.
