Maybe next time, Arnold


As of Wednesday, it appears voters in California rejected all eight state propositions in Tuesday's election.

With 90 percent of votes counted, all four of the referendum propositions endorsed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger had failed; two of them, Proposition 76, on spending caps, and Proposition 77, on redistricting, by wide margins.

Proposition 75, on union dues, and Proposition 74, on teachers' tenure, also failed by more than 5 percent each.

Proposition 73, on abortion notification, went down to defeat.

Both measures on prescription drugs, 78 and 79, were rejected.

Proposition 80, regulating the electricity industry, lost overwhelmingly.
