Former U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison is scheduled to appear Thursday morning before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing regarding her selection as President Donald Trump‘s ambassador to NATO.

Texas Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz plan to introduce the 73-year-old Hutchison, who is coming out of political retirement after three terms in the Senate.

Political observers will be watching to see how Hutchinson, the most senior female Republican senator by the end of her tenure, will navigate Trump’s well-known insistence on absolute loyalty.

Hutchison, originally a backer of Jeb Bush for president in 2016, initially said she wasn’t sure at the time if she could support Trump if he won the GOP nomination.

As ambassador to NATO, Hutchison will become the face of Trump’s uneasy relationship with the 28-nation military alliance, which he once called “obsolete.”
