Governor Schwarzenegger declared victory early in the evening on Prop. 14 and in a statement called it an historic change. The measure will have the top two vote getters—regardless of party—advance to the November election. Campaign spokeswoman Amanda Fulkerson says it’s a victory for voters.
“Before you had six ballot qualified parties appearing on the November ballot, and you never can tell what could happen in November.”
The measure does not affect the Presidential Primary. It would begin in the 2012 elections.
