DENVER (AP) - Imagine a political change favored by an astounding majority of voters but mostly ignored by politicians.
That's what campaign finance activists in Colorado are battling as they try to promote a constitutional amendment approved by Colorado voters last year. The campaign finance amendment passed in every Colorado county, in some cases by amazing margins of more than 8 in 10 voters.
But campaign finance activists say they're still waiting for most of Colorado's congressional delegation to propose changing the federal constitution to limit campaign spending.
The Colorado activists gathered Friday at the state Capitol to mark the third anniversary of a U.S. Supreme Court decision that inspired the amendment push. They said it has been a challenge keeping pressure on officials about last year's vote.
