Post Game Show
Amendment 36 was defeated 65-35 by the Colorado voters. As we can see from the electoral college results, passing this amendment could have proved to be critical in determining the outcome.
When I started this blog in August, I felt that there was very little awareness about this amendment. As the months went on, the parties got moving and the No on 36 organization came together. This was my first real experience of complete strangers motivated by a political cause coming together to win. It was educational and also a lot of fun.
I want to thank Katy for running such a great opposition organization with very few resources (at least until the last few weeks of the campaign).
Also, thanks to Peter who did the No on 36 website. Once that got going, things really started to turn around.
Finally, thank you to all of the other people who posted comments and content on this blog.
As I said before, it was truly incredible to watch total strangers come together for a common cause and come out on top.
The sole purpose of this blog was to defeat Amendment 36. Now that the goal has been achieved, I'll be signing off of this site.
