3. How's this working in Washington state?
They have this same system there.

My concern is that the top 2 vote getters might be Republicans. Then, there's no incentive for moderation. Both will try to "out-conservative" each other to woo the Republican vote while Democrats stay home because they don't want to select from among two ghouls.

Special political interest won this initiative. It will favor Republicans.
