Low-Budget Campaign: Prop 200 Opponents Raise $58K

Posted By on Thu, Oct 22, 2009 at 5:10 PM

The supporters of Prop 200 have raised six times as much money as opponents.

Don’t Handcuff Tucson, the political committee that is urging voters to reject the Public Safety First Initiative on the Nov. 3 ballot, had raised $58,137 as of Oct. 14, according to a campaign finance report filed today.

As we noted earlier today, the Public Safety First committee had raised $360K.

Don’t Handcuff Tucson had raised most of its funding—$44,842—between Sept. 22 and Oct. 14. The committee had about $20,000 in the bank at the end of the reporting period.

Among the major contributors to Don’t Handcuff Tucson: The Arizona Multihousing Association ($10,000), the United Food and Commercial Workers Union ($5,000) and legendary land speculator Don Diamond ($1,000).
