We Finally Win One

Yes, the hate crimes and SCHIP bills passed, but they’ll be vetoed and probably not overridden, so they’re moral victories at best. This is an actual final victory, and it’s HUGE:

Plagued by a lack of money, supporters of a statewide initiative drive to change the way California’s 55 electoral votes are apportioned, first revealed here by Top of the Ticket in July, are pulling the plug on that effort.

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.

Awesome. This really is a huge win. LAT credits Chris Lehane, but Rick Jacobs and The Courage Campaign deserve huge props for all their great work on this.
