Iowa’s Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds is looking for a partner in the attorney general’s office when it comes to confronting the Biden Administration’s overreach from Washington D.C. And she’s hoping that in one week, Iowa voters give her that partner by electing Brenna Bird and retiring Democrat Tom Miller.
“I have to circumvent that every time,” Reynolds said in reference to Miller taking his name off a lawsuit over the Biden student loan transfer plan. “I have to be proactive and talk to other attorneys general in other states to get us notified when they’re going to sue the President over an issue that we should be challenging him on. And that’s ridiculous that I have to try to be proactive to get a lawsuit to challenge what’s happening from the Biden Administration.”
Bird said last week at a rally in Sioux City that Miller has never sued the Biden Administration, despite joining lawsuits against President Donald J. Trump “right and left.”
“(Miller) has been working against what’s best for Iowa,” Bird said. “When I’m attorney general, I will back the blue and I will take the Biden Administration to court.”
When asked specifically what she would take the Biden Administration to court regarding, she had plenty of ammo.
“Where do you start,” asked Bird, who has been endorsed by more than 70 county sheriffs in Iowa. “I will defend farmers against the EPA’s overreach. I will sue over any COVID vaccine mandates. I will join lawsuits to enforce the southern border laws — that is very important. There are so many things going on right now in Washington that are unconstitutional.
“Let’s look at another one — the student loan cancellation, that’s illegal. It was not passed by the House and the Senate. It is wrong and the attorney general took his name off that lawsuit. He refused to join it. I would sue the Biden Administration.”
