Here’s another proposal to add to the list of bold ideas on which Sen. Elizabeth Warren has built her 2020 presidential campaign. “Get rid of the Electoral College.”
During a CNN town hall Monday night, Warren told a live audience in Jackson, Mississippi, that the current system the country uses to elect a president effectively excludes voters in their state, as well as her own.
“Come a general election, presidential candidates don’t come to places like Mississippi,” she said. “They also don’t come to places like California and Massachusetts, right? Because we’re not the battleground states.”
