Political parties hate it, but voters approved it, and so has U.S. District Court Judge John Coughenour in Seattle.
David Ammons, blogging on the Washington Secretary of State’s website, reports here.
update: The state GOP seems to be ready to fight another round:
Bellevue – Washington State Republican Party Chairman Luke Esser issued the following statement regarding Judge Coughenour’s ruling on the Top Two primary:
“We are pleased the court ruled in our favor on the PCO election issue, but we believe the judge erred in not recognizing the confusion created by the Top Two primary infringes on our constitutional rights. We remain convinced that our constitutional rights will ultimately be vindicated and protected, and we will be considering our next steps in the coming weeks.”
