With grassroots support from across all 99 Iowa counties, Guthrie County Attorney Brenna Bird filed petitions in Des Moines today to run as the Republican nominee for Attorney General. With over 6,000 signatures, Bird will be on the ballot to challenge Democrat Tom Miller in November.
“Over the last few weeks, the petition process has taken us all across Iowa,” Bird said, “and has given me the opportunity to talk to so many Iowans. One thing is clear: voters in Iowa are ready for a change in the Attorney General’s office. They want an attorney general who will fight for their constitutional rights and who will Back the Blue. Most importantly, they want an attorney general who will fight back against the Biden Administration’s authoritarianism.”
“Iowans are hurting,” Bird said. “Inflation is through the roof and families are scared. Joe Biden and the radical left are to blame. Instead of fighting back and standing up for Iowans, Tom Miller was one of Joe Biden’s earliest supporters. He’s out of step with Iowa voters and that’s why the voters are going to retire Tom Miller in November.”
Bird concluded by thanking the volunteers and grassroots activists who helped collect petition signatures for her campaign.
“Getting the signatures to run statewide takes a great team and a lot of work,” she said. “I’m grateful to all those who believe in me and cared enough to help collect signatures over the last few weeks. Thank you!”
