Republicans Reexamine Electoral College
Some Republicans in Virginia and other states are looking at the Electoral College in a new way and considering making some changes.
FOX News Radio’s Rich Johnson explains from Charlotte, North Carolina:
Right now, Maine and Nebraska are the only states that apportion their presidential electors by congressional district, instead of winner-take-all like every other state.
But Republicans control just over half of the state legislatures and with it, the power to re-draw congressional districts.
Party leaders here in Charlotte see that as an opportunity to even the playing field in presidential elections.
In Virginia, a State Senate panel has now advanced a bill that would apportion electors by congressional districts. And several other GOP-controlled state legislatures are thinking about it.
