"POLL: Iowans Less Concerned About Same-Sex Marriage, Justices"

A new poll shows that Iowa voters are likely to retain four Iowa Supreme Court justices, including Justice David Wiggins, who was was part of the unanimous 2009 decision upholding same-sex marriage. Three justices were ousted in 2010 after Bob Vander Plaats led a vindictive campaign against them because of their ruling, and his group, The FAMiLY Leader, just announced its “No Wiggins” bus tour. Support for marriage equality has increased to 48 percent among Iowa voters, so it may be a less significant motivator this November.
