Gov. Doug Ducey, elected last year with the help of a group linked to the Koch brothers, is headed to California this weekend to meet with them and some of their colleagues.
Its ties to Ducey and Arizona politics actually go back three years, to when Ducey was leading the campaign to defeat a proposition that would have implemented a permanent 1 cent sales tax, largely to fund education.

Ducey received millions of dollars in dark money during his campaign. And since taking office, one group, American Encore, spent money during the legislative session to bolster Ducey’s education agenda with robocalls that blasted a school superintendent who, with robocalls of his own, had asked parents to contact political leaders to object to Ducey’s proposal to reduce non-classroom spending.
