Colorado Campaign Finance Amendment 75 Fails
Colorado voters defeated Amendment 75, keeping campaign spending limits in place.
Amendment 75 would have allowed candidates to accept five times the level of individual contributions to their campaign as is normally allowed ($1,150 for statewide offices and $400 for local races) if another candidate submitted $1 million or more to his or her own campaign or to a third-party committee.
Only about 33 percent of voters supported the measure. The amendment needed 55 percent of votes to pass.
