JSH - Good question, to which I have no specific answer at the moment. However, PART of AZ's problem is that we're mostly rural with basically only three BIG cities...then all the rest:

Phoenix - largest city & state capitol & mostly red politically.
Tucson - 2nd largest city & mostly blue politically.
Flagstaff - 3rd largest city & was one-time capitol
Yuma - 4th largest city (due to winter "snowbirds").

Here, most of the money goes first to Phoenix & Maricopa County, second to state highway roads, lastly to other cities (Tucson, Flagstaff, Yuma) in descending order...the result of LOTS of political "in-fighting."
