Former Arizona Attorney General Grant Woods will be named today as the chairman of a campaign effort to defeat Proposition 200 in the Nov. 2 general election.
Woods will lead a coalition of business, labor and religious groups that want to stop Prop. 200, also known as the Protect Arizona Now initiative, according to political strategists hired to run the campaign.
Woods, a private Phoenix attorney, is co-chairman of Mainstream Arizona, an independent political group that favors moderate Republicans, and has been involved in previous initiative efforts.
The selection of Woods and other details about the coalition are scheduled to be announced today during a news conference at the state Capitol.
Proposition 200 would require proof of citizenship to vote and photo ID to cast ballots in person.
