Mitchell Tied To New Committee Opposing Sales Tax Hike

Multimillionaire Paul Mitchell, the Republican who unsuccessfully ran for the U.S. House in 2014, is the treasurer for a new ballot question committee that appears geared toward opposing the May 5 ballot proposal to increase the sales tax as part of a plan to raise $1.2 billion for fixing the state's roads.

The new committee, the Coalition Against Higher Taxes and Special Interest Deals, appeared in the Bureau of Elections system Friday.
