(Arizona) – For those of you unfamiliar with Arizona’s Prop 121, the measure would fundamentally change the way the primary system is conducted in the state. Instead of party-controlled primaries, the system would be non-partisan; a single ballot for every candidate and voter.
Naturally, party leaders are not supporters of the measure. In California, for example, where the state went from the least competitive to the most competitive elections after the state held its first non-partisan primary, the two parties have continually challenged the measure in the court system in attempts to get their power over the process back.
Perhaps this video highlights the ultimate irony of the “No on Prop 121” talking points.
