Tuesday was the busiest primary day of this off-year election season. Immigration touched many contests, but not as significantly as the heat of the debate was beforehand.

None was more significant than the Republican primary in California. The winner, Meg Whitman, had started her campaign as a somewhat moderate Republican on immigration. She initially opposed the Arizona law, but her opponent, Steve Poixner, made it the principal issue.
