More super PAC money has been spent in express support of Sen. Bernie Sanders

than for either of his Democratic rivals,

including Hillary Clinton,

according to Federal Election Commission records.

As he swung through Iowa this week, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont rarely passed up a chance to bash

the rising tide of money in politics, a system he said Tuesday was

“corrupt and undermining American democracy.”

At many stops,

he was accompanied by members of National Nurses United,

a seven-year-old union, fanning out from a bright-red bus in matching red scrubs to corral potential Sanders votes.

The union is not just busing nurses into Iowa.

The union’s super PAC has spent nearly $1 million on ads and other support for Sanders,

a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination who has inspired liberal voters with his calls to eradicate such outside groups.

In fact, more super PAC money has been spent in express support of Sanders than for either of his Democratic rivals,

including Hillary Clinton, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records.
