New, 53 comments

High-speed rail in peril! Well, that's the headline. From Ohio to Wisconsin, the New York Times looks at how Republican candidates running for governor are looking to stamp out Obama's high-speed rail plan. And here's Meg Whitman: "... California’s $45 billion plan to link Los Angeles and San Francisco with trains that would go up to 220 miles per hour, could be delayed if Meg Whitman, a Republican, is elected governor. 'In the face of the state’s current fiscal crisis, Meg doesn’t believe we can afford the costs associated with new high-speed rail at this time,' said Tucker Bounds, a campaign spokesman." [NYT]
