Election Results: Hail Labor!
Randy Shaw via Beyond Chron
Last January, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger came up with a strategy to seize control from the Democratic-controlled Legislature: he would launch a series of initiatives that would reduce legislative control of the state budget (Prop 76), force Democrats into costly election battles via a mid-decade reapportionment (Prop 77), and put the Democrats great ally, the California Teachers Association, on the defensive (Prop 74). And he would put these issues before the people in a special November election, where turnout is typically low and party loyalties are not at issue. Last night, California voters powerfully rejected Arnold’s agenda. What went wrong? Many things, but one stands out: when the Governor picked a fight with Roseanne Demoro and the California Nurses Association over nursing staffing levels, he ignited a spark that brought him electoral ruin
