This article in the Telegraph Herald begins with an examination of the eye-opening results from last week's Iowa caucus and wraps with a mention of the unprecedented spending by presidential candidates in Iowa fueling chances for the Voter-Owned Iowa Clean Elections Act (VOICE Act) in this year's legislative session.
VOICE was on the brink of passing last year and supporting groups in Iowa are gathering resources for a fresh fight this year. Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement and other groups are holding a rally for the legislation at the Statehouse in Des Moines on January 17th for any interested Iowans.
They plan to meet with key legislators and state officials, including Gov. Chet Culver, Attorney General Tom Miller, Agriculture Secretary Bill Northey and Department of Natural Resources Director Rich Leopold.

Anyone interested in promoting campaign finance reform, ICCI member or not, is invited to join in. Buses from four different areas around the state will be available to take people to the rally.
