Governor Schwarzenegger Supports Redistricting Reform: What Will the Parties Say?

The governor’s announcement clearly is a major coup for the Common Cause / AARP effort, especially coming with the announcement of the League of Women Voters endorsement.

This is significant progress, especially since one assumes the Governor’s role as campaign chairman also brings plenty of campaign funds. The next question is what position the parties and their leaders will take: is this the long-promised bipartisan redistricting reform effort? Or will this campaign face the path of the last Open Primary ballot measure, when a joint effort by both parties brought down that reform push?
