High court strikes down Ariz. campaign finance law
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday struck down a provision of a campaign financing system in Arizona that gives extra cash to publicly funded candidates who face privately funded rivals and independent groups.

The 5-4 ruling is the latest in a series of decisions by the court’s conservative majority upending campaign finance laws.
