Senator Cory Booker delivered his first televised town hall event on CNN this week; siding with his fellow Democratic challengers and endorsing the end of the Electoral College in future presidential elections.
“My question is: Do you believe that there should be some type of reform to the Electoral College, or should it remain as it is?” asked one audience member.
“Thank you for the question. I believe very simply that in presidential elections, the person with the most votes should be the president of the United States,” said Booker. “But I want to tell you, for us ever to get to a point where we can address that issue, we have got to win this next election under the rules that are there now.”
