In 21 BBY during the Clone Wars, Card was Senator for the InterGalactic Banking Clan in the Galactic Republic's Senate. Card then spoke with senators Lott Dod and Gume Saam about a bill that would have deregulated the banks. Despite Saam's idea of assassinating Senator Padmé Amidala, Card knew that the Senate would not deregulate the banks. Thus, Card said they would have to bring the war to Coruscant in order to force the senate to deregulate the banks. He and Dod agreed to contact their friends on the side of the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
Card spoke with Count Dooku and General Grievous and urged them to launch their attack on Coruscant. After the Separatist Senate voted to open peace talks with the Republic, Card, Dod, and Saam spoke with Dooku. They were displeased that the Separatist Congress had voted to open negotiations, but the Count assured them that chances of peace would disappear after their attack. Dooku and Grievous were able to carry out the attack. Seeing confirmation of the Confederacy's involvement, the Galactic Senate was persuaded by Saam to retaliate by deregulating the banks to access much-needed funds for the military.
Card attended a slave auction on Zygerria in 20 BBY. In 19 BBY Card escorted senator Amidala to the world of Scipio and later had her arrested for espionage. After Amidala's liberation, the Core Five blamed Card for his failure to prevent her from uncovering information, which proved their corruption had almost caused the bankruptcy of the Banking Clan. In his private office, Card contacted Darth Sidious and informed him that their plan was ready. His benefactor then eased his concerms by assuring him that he would be protected.
