Goddard Qualifies for Governor, Applies For Clean Elections Dollars

Posted By on Fri, Mar 12, 2010 at 3:10 PM

Democratic Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard has filed his gubernatorial nominating petitions and turned in his paperwork to get Clean Elections dollars.

The press release:

Attorney General Terry Goddard today filed nominating petitions and $5 donations in order to qualify for Clean Elections funding in his campaign for Governor. The campaign submitted more than 5,300 $5 donations and more than 8,500 signatures, the fruits of a grassroots effort that spread across every Arizona county and did not rely on paid circulators to gather signatures.

"Arizonans from across our state rolled up their sleeves to get this job done," said Attorney General Goddard. "They did it because they want

to see major changes at the Capitol; they want to see officials work together to get the job done instead of the usual games and gimmicks."

The news of Goddard's filing comes during a week that Gov. Jan Brewer and the Republicans in charge struggled to finally pass an FY2010 budget plan that was required back in June 2009 — it was more than eight months overdue.
