On Monday, Donald Trump met with Iowa Senator Joni Ernst. A person close to the Trump campaign stated that the campaign in recent days has started the vetting process on Joni Ernst. Besides Donald Trump and Joni Ernst being at the meeting, Trump's campaign manager Paul Manafort and the Chairman of the GOP Reince Priebus were at the meeting.
Joni Ernst was elected to the US Senate in 2014. Prior to that she served in the Iowa state Senator. Joni Ernst also is a retired National Guard Lieutenant colonel and a veteran of the Iraq war.
Having Joni Ernst on the ticket brings the legislative experience that Trump was looking for as well as military experience. If Trump picks Senator Ernst it could also help Trump close the gender gap that he has in the polls.
