A newly formed group is spearheading an effort to retain an Iowa Supreme Court justice who others are trying to oust because of his support of a ruling that legalized gay marriage in the state.
Justice Not Politics Action is launching a campaign to support the retention of David Wiggins and all other judges on the November 6th ballot.
Wiggins is one of seven justices involved in the 2009 ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in Iowa. He's the fourth justice in the case to come up for a retention vote.
Three others were removed by voters in 2010 following an ouster campaign led by Iowans for Freedom, an offshoot of the conservative group Family Leader.
Iowans for Freedom starts a statewide bus tour September 24th in a bid to remove Wiggins.
