The Arizona Democratic Party released a statement confirming it won’t pay the bond. They also accused Senate Republicans of a “lack of transparency” regarding “the actual cost of the audit,” which “makes the question of posting a $1 million bond laughable.”
The pause would have started at 5 p.m. local time Friday and lasted until 12 p.m. on Monday, April 26.
