Associated Press: PAC head now campaign chief for Ward in Arizona Senate race
he chairman of a political action committee backing Arizona Republican Senate candidate Kelli Ward is assuming a senior role in her campaign, prompting questions about coordination between the groups, which is prohibited by federal law.
With the money and endorsement in the past, the move by Rollins passes muster, so long as the PAC stays out of the race going forward, said Larry Noble of the Campaign Legal Center.
"If they stopped all activity on her behalf, immediately, then arguably there wouldn't be any expenditures to coordinate," Noble said.
But Noble wondered how Rollins would be chosen to run the campaign without some coordination between Ward and the PAC. "How'd he suddenly decide to go over there?" he said.
