Another Presidential Candidate Calls for Abandoning the Electoral College

Pete Buttigieg, Democratic presidential hopeful and mayor of South Bend, Indiana, has come out against the Electoral College, saying: “We’ve got to repair our democracy. The Electoral College needs to go, because it’s made our society less and less democratic.” 

Buttigieg joins President Trump, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Senator Kristen Gillibrand as 2020 candidates who have all called for the national popular vote to replace the Electoral College.
