Senate Democrats to introduce constitutional amendment to abolish Electoral College

Senate Democrats to introduce constitutional amendment to abolish Electoral College | 01 April 2019 | Leading Democratic senators are expected to introduce a constitutional amendment Tuesday to abolish the Electoral College, adding momentum to a long-shot idea that has been gaining steam among 2020 presidential candidates. Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, plans to introduce the measure, along with Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., the No. 2-ranking Democrat in the Senate, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Also signed on to the legislation is Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., one of a growing number of presidential candidates who have called for electing presidents by popular vote, even though changing the Constitution is seen as virtually impossible today.
