DES MOINES, Iowa — A new bipartisan group in Iowa is pushing for campaign finance reform in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.
"Iowa Pays the Price" is set to officially launch Tuesday. The effort is being chaired by Democrats, Republicans and an independent. It's funded by a national group also focused on campaign finance issues.
Group co-chair Brad Anderson is a Democrat who ran unsuccessfully for secretary of state last year.
He says the group plans to spend about $500,000 on an educational campaign that will include social media, online videos, studies and a petition drive.
Anderson also says the group will question presidential candidates about their campaign finance reform plans.
