Fate Of The Son Of Ernst’s SOU Guest Now Known

Washington, DC — Iowa Senator Joni Ernst says Israeli Defense Forces have confirmed the son of the woman she invited as a guest for the State of the Union Address was killed by Hamas on October 7th.

Ernst invited Hagit Chen to the address to highlight the fact Chen and her husband did not know if their son Itay was dead or alive. Ernst says now that they know what happened, she will not forget Itay’s bravery on October 7th, as he defended other innocent civilians from Hamas’s terrorist attacks.
