Supreme Court Cuts Off Matching Funds

Posted By on Tue, Jun 8, 2010 at 9:00 AM

The Supreme Court has reversed itself and declared that matching funds will not be available for candidates who use Arizona's Clean Elections system. But there's a chance the ruling could be reversed yet again.

John Munger, who blamed his decision to get out of the governor's race last week on the Supreme Court's decision to allow matching funds, must feel little silly right now.

The ruling, if it stands (and who knows what will happen at this point?), has big implications for many of the candidates who went with Clean Elections. We'll have more in this week's print edition.
