ABSTRACT
The article reports on the passage of the Clean Elections Act in Arizona that qualifies candidates to finance their campaigns with public funding, freeing them of the need to court big contributors. It indicates that the law is a ballot measure designed to level the playing field for candidates of modest means running against those bankrolled by donors or their own personal fortunes. In addition, the law will limit the personal spending of the candidates in their campaign.
