J.C. Scott: Focusing on campaign finance
On Friday's edition:
We started the show with Arizona Capitol Times reporter Hank Stephenson, who gave a look at headlines out of the state capital. His subjects included campaign contribution limits, a campaign finance case before the U.S. Supreme Court, a referendum against HB 2305 having enough signatures to make the 2014 ballot, and allegations that Attorney General Tom Horne violated election finance laws. Stephenson finished with an update of the 2014 gubernatorial race.
22 min: Up next was TucsonSentinel.com's Dylan Smith, who reported on Pima County having the the lowest Obamacare premiums in the United States, the coming labor shortage in the U.S. and Arizona and incumbent members of Congress stockpiling campaign contributions.
33 min: Talk show host Emil Franzi, editor of the Southern Arizona News Examiner, gave his take on the latest political developments.
51 min: Mark B. Evans of Inside Tucson Business discussed where he wants to take the local business publication.
85 min: We finished our show with attorney Don Loose, who talked about Horne challenging evidence of alleged campaign finance violations, fewer attorneys wanting to be judges, Arizona's two-tier voting system and a ruling that the federal government is not liable for problems caused by the border fence.
