Yesterday voters across California – some of them anyway – decided on state ballot measures and chose who gets to run in the November election. Meg Whitman won the Republican nomination to face Jerry Brown for governor, while Carly Fiorina claimed the party's nod in the U.S. Senate race against incumbent Democrat Barbara Boxer. California voters also approved Proposition 14, which creates an open primary system. Nationally, Arkansas Democrat Blanche Lincoln withstood a party challenge for her Senate seat, and in Nevada the Tea Party-backed Sharron Angle will take on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the fall. Larry Mantle looks at what yesterday's results mean for November.
