…And It’s Dead

September 28th, 2007

Or at least, it is dying. The Republican measure to split California’s electoral votes, that is:

In an exclusive report to appear on this website late tonight and in Friday’s print editions, The Times’ Dan Morain reports that the proposal to change the winner-take-all electoral vote allocation to one by congressional district is virtually dead with the resignation of key supporters, internal disputes and a lack of funds.

The reality is hundreds of thousands of signatures must be gathered by the end of November to get the measure on the June 2008 ballot.

Not that it had all that much a chance of passing anyway, but even the threat was enough to make mobilization against it worthwhile.
