PHOENIX - Arizona's Secretary of State is adjusting funding limits for candidates using Clean Elections money to run their campaigns.
Ken Bennett's office says the rise of about 6 percent will be in place for the 2014 election cycle. Participants qualify for public funding by gathering $5 contributions from eligible voters and agreeing to comply with spending and contribution limits.
Candidates for governor will be awarded $754,000 for the primary and $1.13 million for the general election. Secretary of State and Attorney General candidates can spend $195,000 in the primary and $293,000 in the general election. Candidates for Legislature get $15,000 for their primary races and $23,000 for the general election.
The money comes from the Citizens Clean Elections Commission created by voters in 1998. It collects money mainly from court surcharges.
