The first five minutes of the program will include remarks from Professor Eric McGhee, author of last February’s report on the top-two open primary for the Public Policy Institute of California. The second half of the debate is expected to include questions from callers, as well as inquiries submitted by e-mail.

KW writes: I have great respect for Richard Winger of Ballot Access News, and agree with him on nearly all election issues, including this one. Richard Winger thinks that Top-Two is a bad idea, and that it will hurt third parties.
