Crafton in the Lead: Part 3

A hat tip to Mr. Kleinheider for this post by Mike Byrd, with which I have to agree. Eric Crafton is still dominating the coverage of the English-only ballot measure. There are certainly tough questions that reporters could be asking about the initiative, including the funding.

The only qualification I would add is that what would help drive the press to ask tough questions is someone, some group standing up and organizing the opposition to Crafton's effort. Sorry to say it again, but it's now the middle of July and we haven't heard a serious peep out of the opposition in weeks. It is not dishonorable to lose; not fighting back is a pathway to regret.

TEP learned the hard way during the marriage amendment campaign that you can never get back the time when you weren't organizing.
