Here’s the education speech Governor Ducey didn’t deliver this week:
“My fellow Arizonans, this is the year that we will fully fund public education and raise teacher salaries.”
Quiet boos percolate up in the Legislature. Ducey waves them down.
“Whoa. Here’s the amazing part! Look out Penn & Teller! We’re going to do it without raising taxes!”

Gov. Charlie Baker
An obscure nonprofit with ties to Bay State Republicans is accused of disguising more than $1.2 million in donations from businesses, wealthy advocates, and even Mitt Romney’s federal committee before funneling them toward two failed ballot questions backed by Gov. Charlie Baker, state officials disclosed yesterday.
The group, Strong Economy for Growth, was ordered to pay a $31,000 penalty and register with the Office of Campaign and Political Finance with the agreement it would be barred from all “election-related activity” in 2018.
The nonprofit had “an intent to influence the election,” OCPF said. It donated $990,000 to Great Schools Massachusetts, the committee that pushed a ballot question lifting the state cap on charter schools, and another $178,000 to a Campaign for a Safe and Healthy Massachusetts, which opposed the ballot question to legalize marijuana.
