Judge Tosses Top-Two Primary
Louisiana-style is out, so we're back to doing everything Montana-style (vote one party or the other, choice of party is kept seekrit). Hopefully, KC Elections hadn't started retooling everything yet.
Somebody is clearly making the wrong arguments. Defendants (WA state and the Grange) should have said, "Look, it's just as if we're having the general in September with a runoff in November." There's no way that should be unconstitutional as violating the rights of the parties (remember, the state bears the cost of running the primary, so one could argue that this is not actually a party function at all -- don't call the primary winners "nominees" and you're done).
