Dingy Harry Open to Reviewing Electoral College
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) opened the door to reviewing the Electoral College after Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election but remains on track to win the popular vote.
"I think it would be educational for the country to have some hearings on the Electoral College," he told reporters Wednesday. "I think that's something we should look at."
Reid's comments come after Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) filed a bill Tuesday to abolish the Electoral College.
If Congress agreed to amend the Constitution to do away with the Electoral College, three-fourths of the states would still need to approve the change within seven years for it to take effect.
Clinton is currently leading President-elect Donald Trump by more than 1 million votes, according to a Cook Political Report tracker of the national popular vote, but Trump won the Electoral College, leading the former secretary of State 290-232.
