Democrats Call Out Reynolds Double-Talk In Rebuttal Speech

Tuesday night, Gov. Kim Reynolds gave the Republican rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address.

She mostly filled that rebuttal with national GOP talking points, which a lot of Democrats jumped on as they reacted to her speech.

Wahls is the Democratic leader for the Iowa Senate.

The speech was less focused on Iowa or what she’s done in the state, and more on attacking the Biden Administration for problems it didn’t create—like inflation—and for sending recovery money to states—which Iowa has used.

Konfrst is the Democratic leader in the Iowa House.

DeJear is running against Reynolds for governor.

Others also focused on different policies Reynolds mentioned and how she has handled them in Iowa.

The Democratic Governor’s Association also offered a response to Reynolds, with a focus on how her leadership has impacted Iowa in the years she’s been governor.

All in all, the consensus of many was that Reynolds’ speech was bland, didn’t sell Republican policy priorities, and focused too much on division.
