IA Attorney General Running Again
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- The longest serving Attorney General in the nation says he wants to stay on the job another four years. Tom Miller announced Wednesday he plans to seek another term in 2014. Miller was first elected as Attorney General of Iowa in 1978 and held the position until his failed gubernatorial bid in 1990.
After spending time in private practice, Miller was again elected to serve as Attorney General in 1994 and has served ever since. His campaign team cited Miller's work on negotiating settlements with national mortgage banks, protecting consumers and prosecuting criminals both in and out of the state's borders.
The 69-year-old Miller was born in Dubuque and graduated from Loras College in 1966. He has a degree from Harvard Law School and previously worked as the city attorney for McGregor and Marquette in Clayton County.
