Bleeding Heartland: VOICE - Not Gonna Happen

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

I know that VOICE has nearly universal support in the blogging world and among activists, but the truth is that it is definitely not happening this cycle and unlikely to happen in the future without a serious accounting of how Iowa campaigns are run, both by Democrats and Republicans. Exhibit 1: Mike Gronstal's 2006 third quarter campaign finance report (pdf). Exhibit 2: Mary Lundby's 2006 third quarter campaign finance report (pdf). Both of these show six-figure donations and expenditures for Senators not even up for election in 2006. They don't represent even close to all the centralized money in Iowa politics, either. The reason you see so much party-line activity in Iowa politics is because all the money is controlled by leadership.
