The Invest in Ed campaign, which aims to get a measure on the November ballot that would raise the income tax of higher earners in Arizona, has released new polling indicating it’s a popular concept among nearly two-thirds of the state’s voters.

The effort will need 150,642 valid signatures to make the ballot. At an event Wednesday, the group wouldn’t disclose how many signatures they’d collected.

Joshua Buckley joined The Show with a progress report. He is a Mesa teacher and chair of the Invest in Ed initiative.
