chase martyn (on display): Snubbed by Clinton, Iowans for Sensible Priorities to Endorse Nov. 9

Excerpted from this post at chase martyn (on display)

An oft-overlooked interest group in Iowa that could have an important
impact on the Democratic Iowa Caucuses is Caucus4Priorities, the
political endorsement arm of Iowans for Sensible Priorities. The
group, founded and bankrolled by Ben and Jerry (of Ben & Jerry's ice
cream fame), has had a visible presence here this campaign cycle for
longer than any other group. More than 10,000 Iowans have signed
pledges to only caucus for candidates who support "sensible
priorities," which means cutting pentagon spending to pay for domestic
programs like health care and education. Those 10,000 caucus goers
could comprise between 5% and 10% of the Democratic electorate.
