Rick Stewart, founder of one of Iowa's most dynamic small businesses, is running for the U.S. Senate. He will be conducting the type of campaign most frightening to establishment Republicans and Democrats - Stewart will accept no campaign donations, and is offering a money back guarantee on all his campaign promises.
Actually Stewart does accept campaign donations, but only a maximum of two cents per person. In this campaign, everybody can get their two cents worth, he brags.
Stewart has also pledged to spend no more than $4,999 of his own money on the campaign. That is one dollar less than the maximum allowed before it is necessary to register with the Federal Election Commission (FEC). This allows the campaign to operate without a 'Committee,' without a lawyer, and without wasting half Stewart's time asking people to bribe him with campaign donations. He will not have to kowtow to corporate donors, union PACs, bankers, lobbyists, or anyone else hoping to buy influence in Washington.
