Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren called for the elimination of the Electoral College on the campaign trail over the weekend; saying she hopes to be “the last American President” selected by the states.
“As a presidential candidate, what are your thoughts on the Electoral College?” asked an audience member.
“I want to get rid of it. So, here’s my goal… My goal is to get elected and then to be the last American President elected by the Electoral College. I want the second term to be that I got elected by direct vote, I’m ready,” said Warren.
“I just think this is how a Democracy should work. Call me old fashioned, but I think the person who gets the most votes should win,” she added.
