PHOENIX - Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne and an aide want a court to throw out a campaign finance case against them.
Horne and Kathleen say Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery can't proceed with the case because Arizona law required that Secretary of State Ken Bennett send it to Horne's office, not Montgomery.
An administrative law judge agreed with that position but Montgomery rejected the finding and decided to proceed with the case.
It alleges that Horne and Winn illegally coordinated campaign spending during Horne's 2010 campaign.
The Arizona Republic reports that Horne and Winn now are asking Maricopa County Superior Court to intervene and dismiss the case.
Winn now works for Horne's office. She led a committee that paid for television advertising that supported Horne's candidacy.
