AFP coming to a local election near you?

Americans for Prosperity, the free-market group founded by Charles and David Koch, has been focusing more of its attention and money lately on state elections. Now it is inserting itself into local elections. AFP has been aggressively campaigning in Tuesday’s mayoral and city council elections in Coralville, Iowa, a town with fewer than 20,000 residents, the New York Times reported. Why AFP cares in unclear. AFP is criticizing the city’s debt and economic development strategy. A Democratic state representative from Coralville thinks that AFP officials are “doing whatever groundwork they can for the 2014 elections.”
