California voters reject ALL FOUR Arnold referenda

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Republicans better wake up. George Bush and the Terri Schiavo wing just destroyed the party.

From Reuters:

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger lost his bid to push through a broad package of government reforms in a special off-year election on Tuesday that he called in an attempt to flex his political muscles.

With more than 85 percent of the votes counted, Schwarzenegger trailed on all four of the initiatives he had championed, and four other measures also appeared to have lost.

As a result, the most expensive special election in California history -- at least $300 million including advertising and administering the poll -- appeared to have failed to change public policy and left the Republican governor wounded a year ahead of his reelection bid.
