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.
 
"The people have sent a message loud and clear to Sacramento that they’re tired of status quo and they want change…”
 
Supporters say it will attract more moderate candidates to office—thus breaking gridlock among politicians. But the measure is opposed by political party leaders who say they’ll file a lawsuit. Cres Vellucci is the State Green Party spokesman.   He says the measure is mis-leading and will edge smaller parties out of the process.

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.
