Terry Pell writes from Detroit:
WIth 73 percent of the precincts in, and Prop. 2 still ahead 58 percent to 42 percent, Ward Connerly and Jennifer Gratz declared victory a short time ago. Gratz thanked about a hundred supporters who gathered in East Lansing to watch the returns. Connerly described the victory as “the end of the beginning.”
JOHN adds: Didn’t both parties oppose the Michigan initiaive? Conservatives still have winning issues–racial equality, immigration enforcement, limited government–but the Republican Party has largely stopped running on them.
