The defeat of Proposition 93 in California means that Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez and Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata really will be term-limited out of office this year. That means, of course, that the battle to be the new boss in each chamber now gets underway in earnest.

GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
