Welch would ditch electoral college- VPR

GOP challenger for US Congress Miriam Berry says eliminating the Electoral College will reduce Vermont's influence on presidential elections. But that's not stopping Incumbent Rep. Peter Welch, who wants the president elected by popular vote.

"When asked whether the electoral college should remain in place, Welch said presidents should be chosen based on a popular vote. Berry said the electoral college should remain in place in part because it gives less populated states a greater say in presidential elections. “It does give greater voice to states that have less of a voice,” she said."

    Peter Welch is one of the workhorses in Congress. He is working hard! My problem with Peter is he is working hard against the constitution. Ever since the appointment of RBG to the Supreme Court she has brought her personal beliefs to the bench’s decisions and got away with it. Peter supports these types of appointments because the Democrats have become irrelevant and now rely on liberal judges to pass law as a clandestine legislative branch of government {unconstitutional} to stay in power. Peter must be fired in the next election.
