Senate Conservative Coalition Opposes: Leading By Example

Earlier today, the Senate Conservative Coalition (or whatever they're called these days) filed paperwork with the Secretary of State to begin collecting signatures to require term limits on officeholders to two terms per office.

Bear in mind that state Sen. Chris McDaniel, the leader of Senate conservatives, is currently running for his third term to the state senate.

Should their efforts to place language on the ballot imposing these term limits fail, will Senate conservatives (assuming they win re-election) abide by a self-imposed two-term rule? If McDaniel's re-election is any indication, this does not seem likely. If the initiative does make it onto the ballot, we should all look forward to the likely debate over alternative ballot language like we saw earlier this year with the Initiative 42 alternative.
