What's it gonna be?

Sources tell me the Dem Party higher ups will be making a decision soon about which ballot proposals to push. It seems some of the voter access ideas are putting the fear of God (or at least Karl Rove, I don't know which is worse) in the state GOP. The republicans were a bit too greedy in the last re-districting, they are in a position to lose both the house, senate and congressional delegation. Meanwhile, Stabenow and Granholm look to be in solidish positions. The GOP are going to fight furiously this election and they know every bit will count from here on out. Tim Skubick writes in the LSJ about national party interference in these balot matters. On the money front, the neither party is messing around, check out these numbers from MCFN.org:

2006 is gonna be a brawl.

Whoah...you mean the MDP is going to push something in addition to the minimum wagem proposal? I haven't heard that. But if it's true, this could be a good development.
 
Things are still going through focus groups, but they've been heartened by recent successes in ohio. We'll see in a few weeks or sooner, some of the ideas aren't quite ripe in my opinion, or even good, but a lot of them are.
