Munger withdraws from Arizona governor's race

John Munger is withdrawing from the race for the Republican nomination for Arizona governor.

PHOENIX —

John Munger is withdrawing from the race for the Republican nomination for Arizona governor.

The attorney from Tucson said Tuesday that a Supreme Court order leaving so-called "matching funds" in place for publicly funded candidates presents an "insurmountable obstacle" to his campaign.

Publicly funded candidates get matching funds if they're outspent by privately funded rivals or targeted by independent groups' spending.

Munger is running a campaign with private money, and his financing lags behind Yavapai County businessman Buz Mills' self-funded campaign. Gov. Jan Brewer and State Treasurer Dean Martin are running for the Republican nomination with public campaign funding.

Munger is a former member of the state Board of Regents and a former state Republican Party chairman.
