KJZZ’s Friday NewsCap revisits some of the biggest stories of the week from Arizona and beyond.

Two potential ballot measures surfaced this week: One would overhaul Arizona’s elections with open primaries and ranked voting; another would enshrine abortion protections in the state constitution.

Plus, the state is expecting a big influx of campaign spending on the 2024 election.

To discuss those stories and more, The Show sat down with are Matthew Benson from the firm Veridus and former state lawmaker Aaron Lieberman.
