2020 presidential candidate Democrat Beto O'Rourke was interviewed on MSNBC on Tuesday. O'Rourke supported his competitor Sen. Elizabeth Warren's promise to abolish the Electoral College if she becomes president.
"I think there’s a lot to that because you had an election in 2016 where the loser got 3 million more votes than the victor. It puts some states out of play altogether. They don’t feel like their votes really count," he said.
"If we really want every person to vote and give them every reason to vote, we have to make sure their votes count and go to the candidate of their choosing. So I think there’s a lot of wisdom in that," he added.
Warren was speaking at a town hall on Tuesday. Warren said if she wins the 2020 election, she will "get rid of the Electoral College."
"Come to a general election, presidential candidates don’t come to places like Mississippi. They also don’t come to places like California or Massachusetts, because we’re not the battleground states,” she said.
“My view is that 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 — and every vote counts," she added.
"The Electoral College is enshrined in the Constitution and would require an amendment to alter, and an amendment involves calling a Constitutional convention (difficult) or obtaining 2/3 of the vote in both houses of Congress (nearly impossible)," The Daily Wire reported.
