BleedingHeartland.com political blogger Laura Belin joins Des Moines FM host Chance Dorland to discuss new developments concerning Iowa Lt. Governor Kim Reynold’s plans to appoint a Republican replacement after taking over for current Governor Terry Branstad who will soon leave office to become the US Ambassador to China. While originally releasing a short statement supporting the contrary, Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller now says the Iowa Constitution does not allow Reynolds to appoint a new Lt. Governor. However, Terry Brandstad’s governing partner appears poised to do just that, setting up a standoff that would likely send the issue to the Iowa Supreme Court.
