The Thicket has taken a look at Tuesday's legislative primaries in Indiana and North Carolina. I thought this was interesting:
After two days of searching I found a report in the blog, taking down words, that Rep. John Ulmer (R) was the only incumbent legislator who lost in Indiana. Four Republican senators (including NCSL stalwart Beverly Gard) who had unusual primary challenges based on their roles in property tax legislation won easily.
Last year, a property tax uprising toppled several local officials in Indiana, including Indianapolis Mayor Bart Peterson (in an absolute shocker). Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels has championed property tax cuts, which will be a centerpiece of his reelection campaign this year.
Do these legislative results show that the issue is losing salience? I don't know enough to say.
