And Speaking of Dueling Ballot Props

Looks like voters won't have a chance to vote on whether Arizona's Redistricting Commission--which draws the boundaries of legislative and congressional districts--should put more emphasis on ensuring that the districts are competitive.

Howie Fischer of Capitol Media Services has the details, but it looks like the backers of the initiative drive didn't want to have to compete with an alternative that state lawmakers were contemplating putting on the ballot. State Rep. Jonathan Paton, who had sponsored the legislative alternative, says he'll pull the plug on his bill.
