Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad Confirmed as New Ambassador to China

Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad Confirmed as New Ambassador to China

"While I'm temporarily leaving the state I love and have governed for over 22 years, I know I'm leaving Iowa in great hands with Kim Reynolds". "We look forward to working with the new Governor to continue growing access to Iowa's own homegrown, earth-friendly fuels as part of Iowa's strategy to be a national energy leader".

Hogg criticized former Branstad for only working with Republican leaders and said Reynolds' administration could be a chance to work together. Reynolds, his No. 2, will then become Iowa governor.

Branstad was sworn in as ambassador by federal Judge Steve Colloton in front of an audience of about 85 people, including his wife, Chris, their children and five of the Branstad grandchildren. She has fought to prevent taxpayer dollars from being used to fund the abortion industry, promoted the multitude of women's health services in counties across Iowa, and helped shepherd crucial pro-life bills like the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act through the Iowa legislature. But the 70-year-old who's leaving to be President Donald Trump's ambassador to China may get the most attention for his actions during his final year in office, when Republicans controlled the governor's office and both chambers of the Legislature for the first time in almost 20 years.

"I am incredibly honored to stand before you as the governor of this great state", Reynolds said, after taking her oath.

Reynolds recently met individually with the head of every state agency, soliciting ideas for streamlining state government operations, too.

Terry Branstad is now officially Ambassador Terry Branstad. He was nominated by US President Donald Trump to be the next US Ambassador to China in December 2016.
