Washington, D.C. – Concerned Women for America is pleased to honor Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) with our Statesman of the Year award at our 40th Anniversary Gala Dinner on Thursday, September 12. CWA awards Statesman of the Year to an elected leader who has demonstrated courage when representing traditional values and who has been a leader and a strong voice on the issues that define CWA’s mission.
“In the 116th Congress, Joni Ernst was selected by her peers to hold a leadership position as Vice-Chair of the Senate Republican Conference. She is also serving a key role on the Senate Judiciary Committee,” said Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America. “We honor Sen. Ernst tonight as Statesman of the Year for her strong voice of leadership on pro-life issues, for policies that protect women and families, and for confirming judges who will uphold our constitution. We are grateful for her commitment to conservative principles that protect life and liberty and the common sense values she represents. She is an inspiration to our CWA members and hero to our Young Women for America (YWA) presidents,” she continued.
Congratulations to Senator Joni Ernst. CWA is grateful for her leadership, integrity, and hard work as a U.S. Senator.
