A republican attorney from Bettendorf is running for Attorney General. David Millage says current Attorney General Tom Miller, a democrat, focuses on the wrong cases. Millage says Miller’s too intent on joining in national, class action cases, like the lawsuit against Microsoft.Millage, who is 48-years-old, says he’d focus on getting criminals prosecuted and locked up. Millage has been a lawyer for 23 years, and argued cases in all levels of the courts. He’s also been a state legislator for the past 12 years, and is currently chair of the House Appropriations Committee.Democrat Tom Miller intends to seek his sixth, four-year term as Attorney General, and he disputes the idea his agency isn’t focused on locking up criminals.Miller defends the state’s participation in the case against Microsoft, and cites an appeals court ruling that Microsoft’s acted like an illegal monopoly.Miller says Millage’s idea of refusing to participate in national, class action cases would seriously undermine what the Attorney General can do for Iowa consumers.Millage made stops in Davenport, Cedar Rapids, Waterloo and Mason City yesterday to formally announce his candidacy. He’ll discuss his campaign launch at events today in Des Moines, Sioux City and Council Bluffs.
