We Won! BREAKING NEWS: Electoral Initiative Backers Give Up

Congratulations to the Courage Campaign and everyone that joined in. I was going to fight this to the end. Remember, we have more voters than they do, so they need to cheat to win. We must always fight for our right to vote and not let the system get played by the sneaky Republican operatives.

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.
