We win, big money looses! This from Common Cause.

Last Thursday, the Arizona Supreme Court sided with the people and against wealthy special interests, and threw the Clean Elections Repeal Initiative off the ballot. The Court ruling upheld a lower court decision from late last month, which found that the Big Money Special Interest Amendment, Prop 106, violated the state's constitution and the single-subject rule.

We are excited to have won this case and won this campaign. Common Cause salutes the hardworking staff and leadership of Keep It Clean and the Clean Elections Institute in Arizona as well as the efforts of members like you! Together we have worked tirelessly for months to build a campaign that employed coordinated and smart strategies to beat back this attack on Clean Elections. Big money never gives up power without a fight, and it is good to come out on the winning end!
The other side has vowed to come back in 2006, so we will continue to build upon the momentum that so many people helped to get going for this critical campaign in defense of a flagship law. The campaign will proceed with dozens of house parties already scheduled through August and a victory rally scheduled for tomorrow, August 17, at Grace Lutheran Church, 1124 N. 3rd Street in Phoenix, starting at 5:30. Please join us, and if you can't, lift a toast to the good guys today! Support Common Cause: http://www.commoncause.org/support
