Gennaio 17, 2018

Former U.S. Sen. Bob Dole of Kansas will receive one of the highest civilian honors bestowed in the U.S.

The ceremony is set for 3 p.m. EST.

In September, Trump signed a bill awarding the medal to Dole.

"As America reaches a crossroads on pivotal issues from immigration and security at our borders to opioids and crumbling infrastructure in our heartland, our leaders in Congress must look to Dole as a role model now more than ever".

U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins, who represents Topeka and the 2nd District, will present the medal to Dole, 94, in the rotunda of the U.S. Capitol, her office said in a news release. Dole served in World War II and has advocated for veterans, the Associated Press reported.

The Russell native was the Republican presidential nominee in 1996 but lost the election to President Bill Clinton.
