This is potentially interesting. Not because of the back and forth on vouchers, that’s mindnumbing stuff except for the fiercest partisans on both sides. What’s interesting is the money politics and whether there would even be big funding for a statewide voucher referendum in Arizona if voucher proponents choose to go that route. After the defeat of voucher referendums in California and Michigan in 2000, (particularly Michigan because the California one was really pie-in-the-sky stuff and even lefty voucher proponents opposed it) the word was that the big money behind the voucher campaigns was very reluctant to make big bets like this again because they just don’t pay off.
