A Discussion on Progressive State Victories in the Mid-term Elections

Justice Louis Brandeis once referred to the states as the “laboratories of democracy.” The midterm elections of 2006 proved voters were tired of the failed conservative experiment of governance in these “laboratories” and chose candidates, ballot measures and referenda which reflect progressive values and ideas that advance the common good. Please join the Center for American Progress Action Fund and the Ballot Initiative Strategy Center as we discuss progressive victories in statehouses, governorships and ballot measures in the 2006 mid-term elections and provide thoughts on what these victories mean for states.
