DES MOINES, Iowa – With just under four months until the election, Brenna Bird, the Republican nominee for Attorney General of Iowa, called on Tom Miller to participate in at least two televised debates and issue forums focused on law enforcement and agriculture issues.
“Iowa deserves a proactive, involved, and responsive Attorney General,” Bird said. “Tom Miller’s absence both in the courtroom and in Iowa’s communities suggest he is no longer prepared to support the people he serves. As Iowa’s next Attorney General, I will do the job, tackle the tough issues, challenge the Biden Administration, and support our law enforcement.”
Bird said she has spent several months traveling throughout Iowa and explaining her plan to keep local communities safe, and accused said Miller has been notably absent. Bird said she believes it is time for a substantive discussion of the issues and for Tom Miller to engage in the political process and explain his positions as Iowa’s current Attorney General.
“The people deserve to know where Tom Miller stands on these issues before the November election,” Bird added.
Bird ran uncontested in the Republican primaries and like many other GOP candidates in the state, saw incredible voter turnout. She has also earned the support of organizations like the Republican Attorney Generals Association (RAGA). The momentum of her campaign and its widespread support has also contributed to a large fundraising lead as she continues to outraise Miller.
Bird challenged Miller unsuccessfully in 2010. She currently serves as the county attorney for Guthrie County, first elected to that role in 2018.
