  •  I agreed at first, but (0+ / 0-)

    now after seeing the results I think the top two primary is an excellent idea. It made even safe democratic districts competitive which in the end gives citizens more accountability over their elected officials. Plus it seems to have the effect of electing more progressive democrats. I mean I'm hardly disappointed that Rep. Pete Stark is being sent home and democrats hold the seat. However, I do think it should be coupled with instant runoff voting ensuring the winner receives the absolute majority of votes rather than a plurality.
