Arizona's budget battle: Who won and who lost - Alia Beard Rau , Yvonne Wingett Sanchez , Mary Jo Pitzl and Ronald J. Hansen, The Republic

While they won by getting the bonding deal, the suggestion of a potential lawsuit by Board of Regents President Eileen Klein if lawmakers denied the universities the $1 billion package nearly derailed the entire measure.

Mark Finchem, could inflict long-term damage on the regents' relationship with conservative Republicans.
