(Des Moines, IA) Johnston attorney and Republican Attorney General nominee Adam Gregg completed his 99 Iowa county tour on today in Worth County, four months to the day after entering the race. Gregg stated the message he’s received from Iowans across the state has been clear: Attorney General Tom Miller has lost touch with his clients, the voters of Iowa.
“Last week, on our Iowa Press appearance, Attorney General Tom Miller admitted he doesn’t use email, relying on an assistant to filter his information,” Gregg noted. “Worse yet, he fell back on the fact that the main way he keeps in contact with Iowans is through the consumer protection fraud hotline.”
“Iowans deserve an Attorney General who not only keeps up with the times, but keeps up with his clients,” Gregg stated. “Tom Miller refuses to travel the state, and his vision for the next four years is simply ‘more of the same.’”
“And it’s what he’s done over the past six years that concerns Iowans,” Gregg stated. “According to the Attorney General’s own handwritten schedule, he’s spent 111 days in Washington, DC since President Obama has been elected. As a result, on almost every issue affecting our rights and our liberties, the Attorney General has sided with President Obama and against the interests of Iowans.”
Miller’s schedules were obtained through an open records request of his office.
Gregg added, “I’ve said since we started this campaign, Attorney General Miller is more likely to be seen in Washington, DC than Washington County, Iowa. His handwritten records prove this to be true.”
“Iowans deserve an Attorney General who will fight for them, and not for the political agenda of President Obama,” Gregg added. “Iowans also deserve public servants who are accessible and willing to meet with them to hear their concerns. It is fair for Iowans to ask Tom Miller why he has time for over 100 days in Washington, DC, but not a single day in their county.”
Gregg concluded, “This is only my first 99 county tour. As I’ve also said since we started this campaign, I promise to visit all 99 counties every year as Iowa’s next Attorney General.”
