Connerly’s Plans

Ward Connerly plans to sponsor anti-preference ballot initiatives in two to five states in 2008, out of a field of nine possible states, the Chronicle of Higher Education reports.  The candidates are Arizona, Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming.  Connerly says his goal is to stage the equivalent of a “Super Tuesday” on affirmative action, “to demonstrate beyond doubt that race preferences are antithetical to the popular will of the American people.”   You can help Connerly build up his warchest for these battles by donating to the American Civil Rights Coalition or the American Civil Rights Institute.
