Special Edition on public financing of judicial campaigns now out

Earlier today the Supreme Court handed down its decision on Arizona’s public financing system in McComish v. Bennett and Arizona Free Enterprise Club’s Freedom Club PAC v. Bennett. While Arizona’s system does not cover judges, in the years since the plaintiffs filed their initial lawsuit(s), several state legislatures (including Arizona’s) have looked to adopt or in fact have adopted such systems for judicial elections.

This special edition of Gavel to Gavel looks at such efforts and how far they have gotten.
