FILE - In this Jan. 10, 2017, file photo, Iowa Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds and her husband Kevin stand as they arrive to listen to Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad deliver his annual condition of the state address before a joint session of the Iowa Legislature at the Statehouse in Des Moines, Iowa. Reynolds will soon become governor of Iowa, but she isn't in a hurry to draw attention to herself or point to future changes in priorities or style. For weeks since President Donald Trump announced he'd appoint Gov. Terry Branstad as ambassador to China, Reynolds has said little more than she's ready to be governor and intends to implement policies backed by her predecessor. (AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall, File)

FILE - In this Jan. 15, 2014 file photo, Iowa Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds speaks to supporters before introducing Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad at a rally in West Des Moines, Iowa. Reynolds, presumptively the next governor of Iowa, faces a renewed spotlight amid her sudden rise to the state's top job. Gov. Terry Branstad's plans to be a diplomat in President-elect Donald Trump's administration means attention will soon zero in on Reynolds, who could play a pivotal role in a GOP-majority statehouse that's itching to pass conservative legislation long derailed by Democrats.
