Under current law, primary election candidates for the office of Governor and general election candidates for the offices of Governor and Lieutenant Governor may agree to receive public funds to finance their campaigns. If agreeing to participate in the public financing program, such candidates must adhere to campaign contributions limits specified in the law and, among other requirements, participate in a series of public debates. This bill provides that public financing under this program would also be available for primary election campaigns to fill a vacancy in the office of Governor and general election campaigns to fill a vacancy in the offices of Governor and Lieutenant Governor.
