CA: Repubs were not shy about their secret weapon, Prop. 73

If you wondered at all whether this was deliberate and planned, now you know you were't being paranoid.

Re Prop. 73, the initiative requiring minors to get parental approval for abortions:
"That is one of our secret weapons," California Republican Party Chairman Duf Sundheim said. "People feel very passionately about that."

Sundheim and others said the initiative will increase voter turnout among abortion rights foes, who would be likely to support the measures the governor has endorsed.
