A press release sent to TPID via email:
Columbus, OH – June 4, 2010. The Libertarian Party of Ohio announced today that it is supporting the STOP Top Two initiative currently underway in California. The Libertarian Party of Ohio Central Committee, as well as the Executive Committee, has voted to support the Libertarian Party of California, as well as the California Republican Party and the California Democratic Party in supporting STOP Top Two.
Somewhat confusing wording. This makes it sound like they are asking for a yes vote on some other initiative, rather than a no vote on 14. Also, for some odd reason IPR isn’t on their distribution list?]
From the LA Daily News:
WHAT if you opened up your November ballot and discovered that your only two choices for attorney general were both Republicans? Or that your only two choices for lieutenant governor were both Democrats?
If Proposition 14 were already in effect, there’s a real possibility that such an outlandish outcome could occur. Here are the top two reasons to reject Prop. 14, also called the “Top Two” primary. First, Prop. 14 will stifle political competition and debate. Second, Prop. 14 will deprive voters of a full range of candidate choices.
