Republican gubernatorial candidate Buz Mills is making Gov. Jan Brewer’s public campaign funding an issue but mixes up the money involved.

Mills says in a web video that Brewer “is raiding $3 million” of tax dollars to pay for her campaign after winning voter approval of a sales tax increase to help balance the state budget.

According to the ad released Monday, Brewer is “not a conservative.”

Public campaign funding comes from surcharges on criminal and traffic fines, not the sales tax. And Mills’ $3 million figure presumes Brewer wins the primary and advances to the general election.

Brewer spokesman Doug Cole responds that Mills’ criticism is “half-cocked” but says “it’s nice” that Mills assumes Brewer will defeat Mills in the primary.

  1. I’d rather have a candidate running “clean’ like Brewer and Goddard, than a candidate like Buz running with money he got from defrauding his business partner.
