Re "Redistricting reform - or lack of it - is a game changer" (Editorials, Feb. 10): New redistricting is working. But the editorial ignores the impact of the top-two initiative on redistricting's future success.
You cannot separate the two. Nearly 30 states, many which are blue, have Republican governors and legislatures. This is caused by two things: gerrymandering of districts by partisan legislatures and significant money to carry out exclusive elections.
The result is further strengthened by strong voter suppression attempts in blue states by red legislatures to keep blue voters home.
That brings us to Charles Munger, Jr., paying for signature gathering to pass the top two initiative, redistricting, and then passing out significant money to local Republicans including the 6th AD incumbent to make sure that the right Republicans are elected.
With enough money the primary under top two can easily become an exercise in voter suppression.
