VANDER PLAATS TO FOCUS ON JUSTICE ELECTION

SIOUX CITY—A SIOUX CITY MAN IS LAUNCHING A NEW EFFORT TO BATTLE THE SUPREME COURT AND THEIR VOTE SUPPORTING GAY MARRIAGE IN THE STATE.

REPUBLICAN GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATE BOB VANDER PLAATS WILL NOT RUN FOR GOVERNOR AS AN INDEPENDENT THIS FALL.

INSTEAD, HE WILL TRY TO DEFEAT THE THREE STATE SUPREME COURT JUSTICES WHO ARE ON THIS NOVEMBER’S BALLOT IN A RETENTION ELECTION.

IN APRIL OF 2009 THE SEVEN-MEMBER STATE SUPREME COURT ISSUED A RULING WHICH PAVED THE WAY FOR GAY MARRIAGE IN IOWA.

VANDER PLAATS HAS RUN FOR GOVERNOR THREE TIMES AND HAS YET TO ENDORSE REPUBLICAN TERRY BRANSTAD, WHO IS FACING INCUMBENT CHET CULVER THIS NOVEMBER.
