DES MOINES, Iowa (KWWL) -- Republicans and Democrats around the state are reacting to Governor Reynolds' State of the Condition address on Tuesday evening.
OFFICIAL PARTY REACTIONS
The Republican Party of Iowa released the following statement:
"Tonight Governor Reynolds showed Iowans that she's a leader with compassion, bold ideas, and the grit and determination to get things done. Her bold agenda of getting our children back in school, investing record amounts into broadband internet infrastructure and fighting for our men and women in law enforcement prove she's the leader Iowa needs to come back stronger than we were before this pandemic. "Republican Party of Iowa
The Democratic Party of Iowa released the following statement (in part):
“Iowa Democrats are ready to move forward on a path that brings COVID-19 relief to our communities, resources and vaccines for frontline workers, and meaningful plans for our schools and teachers.
Unfortunately what we heard tonight from Governor Reynolds was more of the same. The same lack of transparency or detailed plans to distribute the vaccine and combat the concerning spread of the pandemic in our state. More of the same talking points about reopening schools without guaranteeing the public health resources and guidance that schools and parents need to keep our students and teachers safe in the classroom.Iowa Democratic Party
