Anti-affirmative action measure still in limbo
The Colorado Civil Rights Initiative, a ballot measure seeking to end affirmative action in the state, has not yet been called.
According to The Denver Post, opponents of Amendment 46 have a slight, 1 percent lead. But provisional votes across the state are still being counted.
A similar measure, also propped by anti-affirmative action guru Ward Connerly, passed in Nebraska last night. Up until recently, the anti-46 contingent was mired in lawsuits attempting to railroad the initiative. But in the past few weeks, the Vote No campaign ramped up its advertising. Stay tuned for more as the results roll in.
