A joint campaign that promised to revolutionize Arizona politics is suspending its operations after its primary funder withdrew his financial support for a proposed initiative to require disclosure of the anonymous election spending known as dark money.

Members of the Open and Honest Coalition (photo) announced on Thursday that Texas businessman and philanthropist John Arnold had asked for his money back from one of the two campaigns. The Open and Honest Disclosure campaign, which is pushing an anti-dark money initiative, returned about $178,000 of the $500,000 that it received from the national organization Open Primaries, which received the money from Arnold.
