DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Gov. Terry Branstad has appointed a former aide to serve as Iowa State Public Defender.

Branstad announced Monday that Adam Gregg would take over the office, which coordinates legal representation for those that cannot afford it. The previous public defender is moving to another state job.

Branstad said in a news release that Gregg will “work to represent and defend individuals who otherwise couldn’t afford legal representation.”

Gregg most recently ran as the Republican candidate for attorney general, losing to incumbent Democratic Attorney General Tom Miller in November. Before that, he served as a legislative liaison for Branstad. He is a graduate of Drake University Law School.
