Finally something that Republicans and Democrats can fully agree on…

Putting issues above party loyalty in the primaries...

Putting issues above party loyalty in the primaries…

 

Oregon’s Measure 90 on the November ballot is predictably drawing political fire from both the Democratic and Republican parties.  Both contend that by running a non-partisan popularity contest in the primary it could  produce two top candidates from the same party for the general election.

That’s precisely the motivation of those supporting the “top two” primary vote-getters who would ace each other in November.  The other motivation for Measure 90 is the tendency for liberal and conservative candidates to go radically partisan in the primary and then veer back toward the “middle of the road” for the general.  The “top two” in the primary approach helps to moderate the confusion as to what each candidate truly stands for.

Both parties and a few independent parties as well, decry that this “early outing” tactic, claiming  it would strip voters of their right to vote for their party’s choice.  Supporters of Measure 90 contend that a party’s choice can still be made known through the news media and via political advertising.
