11. Me too.
State politics is royally SCREWED now. With an open primary, candidates will be dedicating more time to fundraising as the primary gets more competitive and in the general election voter choice will be limited. With lobbyists off the hook and zero public campaign funding, the fundraising efforts will never end, and candidates will buy offices rather than win them.
