In Iowa, judicial races turn into big money, big stakes affairs

DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) - Three experienced officeholders seeking re-election in Iowa have refused to campaign to keep their jobs, but that has not stopped both supporters and opponents from launching a partisan, high-profile effort, complete with television and radio ads and a touring campaign-style bus.

The candidates are Iowa Supreme Court justices, and their ruling on a hot-button issue has become the flash point for a national debate over how judges should be selected.
