Lobbyists for corn syrup are going after federal subsidies for sugar, the Washington Post reports. The article concludes:
Not every conservative group celebrated the corn growers jumping into the fray. James Davis from the Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce said that his group opposes special breaks for sugar and corn growers.
"We're not real interested in climbing in bed with the corn lobby to accuse the sugar industry of being prostitutes," he said. "We oppose all forms of corporate welfare."
With Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio both from the sugar-producing state of Florida, and with corn a big crop in the early caucus state of Iowa, this should be one to watch through the presidential campaign.
