Governor Arnold meets Common Cause

Schwarzenegger, in Washington, meets resistance, partisan sniping
Democrats, however, were not happy that the governor spent part of the day with officials of Common Cause, a government watchdog group that endorsed the governor's plan to take the once-a-decade job of drawing legislative and congressional boundaries away from California lawmakers and give it to a panel of retired judges.
While Common Cause would prefer to wait until 2010 for redistricting reforms to begin, a source said the group's officials were willing to endorse the governor's plan for a mid-decade redistricting, which many Democrats and Republicans oppose.
