Everything else lost—including the initiative that would have kept leaders of the Assembly and Senate from being termed out of office. What will that mean for health insurance, the budget and other unresolved issues? On Reporter’s Notebook, the latest on Independents who wanted to vote Democratic in LA County.

Main Topic Picking Up the Pieces of Super Tuesday 17 MIN, 17 SEC

Despite the support of Governor Schwarzenegger, Prop 93 failed in yesterday’s election. It was a legislative term-limits measure that would have saved current leaders from being termed out at the end of this year. Now Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez and Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata—both Democrats—are lame ducks. Today, the Governor told the Sacramento Bee’s Editorial Board, “I really wanted some of those guys to stay.”

Reporter's Notebook Did Independents Fill Out the Democratic Bubble? 7 MIN, 16 SEC
California’s Republican Party does not allow Independents vote in the primary. Democrats and American Independents do. Yesterday in Los Angeles County, Independent voters were required to mark a ballot indicating their preference. If they failed, their votes for president did not count. A voting rights group is asking that they be included.

Guests:
Stephen Kaufman, Partner, Kaufman Downing
Eliot Angle, Interior designer in Los Angeles
