Which Arizona House candidates are getting PAC money?




This is the third in an ongoing series that examines spending by political action committees.

Political action committees, commonly known as PACs, are a major way for candidates to raise money for their campaigns.

In statewide races, candidates raised more than $600,000 in PAC contributions, nearly half of which went to Gov. Doug Ducey.

In races for the Arizona Senate, candidates have raised roughly $251,000 from PACs.

The Arizona Mirror examined campaign finance reports to determine the support each candidate for state-level office has from PACs. Including those who lost in the August primary election, House of Representative candidates have received over $480,000 from PACs during the 2018 election cycle.

Of the 101 candidates who ran for House seats in the primary election, 26 ran as Clean Elections candidates, meaning they are prohibited from taking any PAC money. Of those, 22 are Democrats and four are Republicans.

The biggest beneficiaries of PAC money among House candidates this cycle are Noel Campbell, Charlene Fernandez, Regina Cobb, Bob Thorpe, David Cook, Randall Friese, Tim Dunn, Nancy Barto, Kelly Townsend, Jill Norgaard, Diego Espinoza, Jose Rivero, Kevin Payne, Jay Lawrence, John Kavanagh, Michelle Udall, Russell Bowers, Maria Syms and Richard Andrade.

But what PACs are giving money, and to whom?
