This just in from Oregon Independent:
Dan is overstating the case a bit. The Working Families party supports M65, and the Independent Party of Oregon is split on the measure and will not take a position.
The Libertarians and Greens don't like it because they are more interested in running protest candidates than they are winning races.
I disagree with his analysis that M65 will remove general election ballot access for Independents and other minor parties. 44 percent of all legislative races are currently not contested, and the Republicans did not field a candidate in 2 out of the 5 statewide races (AG, Labor Comissioner) during this cycle.
As someone who has spent some time recruiting candidates, I would much rather play by the same rules that the major parties play under.
