Arizona "Top Two" Initiative Goes DOWN!!

Arizona voters soundly rejected the state's Prop 121 initiative which would exclude all but the top two vote-getters in the primary of state elections from the general election. No votes outnumbered Yes votes by two to one.

Monday, November 5, 2012

Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson could be the key to who wins the White House on Tuesday. Who that ultimately helps or hurts remains to be seen.
