Iowa attorney general to seek another term in 2014

Posted: Updated:

Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller announced Wednesday that he will be seeking a ninth term in office in 2014. Miller made the announcement at news conferences in Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, and Dubuque.

"I seek another term based on record of accomplishment and a desire to do more for Iowans in the next term," Miller said at the Dubuque County Courthouse. "I believe that we have had a very effective and productive three years in this term looking back since the last election."

Miller is a Dubuque native and was first elected to the post in 1978. He has held the job ever since, except for one term in the early 1990's. He says he comes to work everyday excited about the work being done but he says their is more work to be done including investigations for profit colleges, and looking at debt collection practices are on the horizon.

"We also choose as a priority for the future debt collection and debt sales. In America, a lot of the debt is being sold out rather than collected by third parties, it is being sold to third parties. That presents some real challenges and fairness for consumers. We are focused on that."

No Republicans have emerged yet as candidates in the race for attorney general next year.
