Hendrick Hertzberg reports on a truly devious plot. It seems the California GOP has got a measure on the ballot that would switch the state to a Maine/Nebraska-style method of allocating electoral votes, giving one vote to the winner of each congressional district, thus providing a bonanza for the Republicans. This is going to be voted on during a very sleepy June 3 primary that won’t include any presidential candidates.
