Arizona anti-public financing measure advances

Is public financing of campaigns in danger in Arizona?  KSWT reports.

Arizona voters would decide whether to gut the state’s public campaign finance system under a proposed ballot measure approved Monday by the state Senate.

It would amend the Arizona Constitution to bar use of tax money for political campaigns. That would effectively terminate the Clean Elections system first used in 2000 after being created by voters’ approval of a 1998 initiative.
