Beto O'Rourke campaigns at New Hampshire colleges

Beto O'Rourke campaigns at New Hampshire colleges”

Elizabeth Warren kicked things off at a CNN town hall Monday night when the MA senator drew enthusiastic applause by saying: "Every vote matters, and the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting, and that means get rid of the Electoral College".

Elizabeth Warren supports the elimination of the electoral college, the most pointed instance of the Democratic presidential candidate opposing the polarizing mechanism the nation uses to elect its presidents.

And on Sunday, Colorado joined 11 other states and the District of Columbia to approve the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, in which members pledge to give their electoral votes to whoever wins the national popular vote.

FBI Joins Criminal Probe Into Boeing 737 Max 8 Certification
The FAA said its " robust processes" and "full collaboration with the aviation community" were key to safety worldwide. Justice Department is also seeking records in a possible criminal probe of the plane's certification.

"The Electoral College has been targeted for reform or abolition some 700 times", said Avlon.

With the Popular Vote, you go to. O'Rourke suggested a constitutional amendment to award the presidency to the victor of the popular vote. However, the compact will only take effect when it has at least 270 electoral votes-enough to win the presidency-and now, thanks to Colorado, it's well on its way with 181.

Warren had a town hall last night, and she said that she thinks we should do away with the Electoral College.

Trump wants GM CEO 'to do something quickly' to reopen OH plant
Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown is calling out the President for a series of tweets centered on the General Motors Lordstown idling. He also blasted GM for letting down the USA and asserted "much better" automakers are coming to the country.

Presidential campaigns have a way of smoking out candidates on topics they hadn't prepared white papers on, nor planned to emphasize.

In case you haven't heard us shouting this from the mountain tops on a regular basis, Donald Trump lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by 2,864,974 votes. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) has gone even further, saying that Justice Neil Gorsuch, a Trump appointee, is illegitimate because Gorsuch's seat should have gone to outgoing President Barack Obama's 2016 nominee, Merrick Garland.

"It requires a constitutional amendment", Delaney told CNN Wednesday.

FG bans Boeing 737 Max airplanes in Nigeria
Air Canada , along with Southwest and American Airlines , are the major outliers in resisting a grounding of the fleet. The Boeing 737 Max 8 plane is the same as the one involved in the Lion Air crash last October killing 189 persons.

Critics argue that the Electoral College minimizes the role of millions of voters in several populous states because the results there are rarely in doubt. "I'd much rather focus on things that can get done".
