Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Tuesday introduced a petition calling for an end the Electoral College, one day after she said during a town hall event that she supports using a national popular vote to determine presidential elections.
“This week, I’m spending time in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Alabama — talking with people about what matters to them in their communities. Like how we need to rebuild rural housing and make sure everyone can find a decent place to live at a decent price,” Warren wrote in a campaign email introducing the petition.
The article goes on to state the following:
“But the way it works right now, come general election time, presidential candidates don’t travel to every state,” she added.
Warren, who is seeking the 2020 Democratic nomination for president, also said that “everybody running for president ought to have to come and ask for your vote.”
