Janet Napolitano, the nominee for Secretary of Homeland Security, was Arizona's first governor elected with the assistance of public funding. She participated in Arizona's Clean Elections program in both 2002 and 2006. Public funding of her two gubernatorial races provided $2.25 million in 2002, and $1.56 million for her re-election campaign in 2006. Napolitano successfully ran for state Attorney General in 1998 (prior to enactment of that campaign-financing program) and raised just over $742,000.
