DES MOINES — The Republican candidate for Iowa Attorney General says if she’s elected in November, she’ll go to court to challenge the overreach of the federal government.
“We hear from a lot of people who are concerned about what’s going on with the Biden Administration,” Brenna Bird says. “They’re worried about their freedoms, they’re worried about how do you fight back?”
Bird is currently the Guthrie County Attorney. As Iowa’s attorney general, Bird says she’d assign a squad of staffers to work on lawsuits challenging federal regulations that restrict Iowa farm operations or impose unwarranted public health restrictions. “I have news for Joe Biden when I’m attorney general: I’ll see you in court,” Bird says.
Bird made her comments at the State Fair on The Des Moines Register’s Political Soapbox. Bird is challenging Democrat Tom Miller’s bid for a 10th term as Iowa’s Attorney General. Miller says his opponent primarily sees the office as a means to sue the Biden Administration, while he views his role as serving the people of Iowa.
