How 'bout them apples

The Governor's Office today sent out a press release showing she's not alone in her fight for what she views is the only way to truly balance the budget in '10, '11, and '12.  The list is extensive and the groups represent quite a large constituent.  The full list can be seen here and we've previously listed some of the heavy hitters.

Another thing that the administration is doing right is that Arizona has just taken a major step towards dismantling race and gender preferences and discrimination in state and local government. Today, The state Senate voted to place an initiative on the 2010 general election ballot barring discrimination against – or preferential treatment for – any individual on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin. The Arizona House approved identical legislation last week.

“Today we are giving Arizonans an opportunity to tell our government to end this form of legalized discrimination once and for all,” remarked Rachel Alexander, chair of the Arizona Civil Rights Initiative.

And most people would agree with Rachel… A recent Quinnipiac University National Poll finds American voters overwhelmingly in favor of abolishing Affirmative Action. The survey also shows voters disagree by more than 3 to 1 with Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor’s ruling in favor of racial preferences in a case involving firefighters in New Haven, CT.

Another list, half of which cannot vote because they are not natural people. I think We the People still outnumber them.

I'll be curious when Governor Brewer and the Arizona Democratic Party start promoting her plan in all its glorious bipartisan glory.
