PHOENIX (AP) - A clean elections initiative says it is calling it quits after it was unable to secure a contract with a petition-gathering firm.

The Arizonans for Clean and Accountable elections announced plans today to suspend its efforts to gather signatures.

The initiative would have required more transparency from lobbyists while also requiring candidates for office to disclose more information about funding, among other things.

The organization says the campaign was trying to hire a local company that gathers signatures for petitions but was unable to.

It says over 100,000 voters had already signed the petition.
