Priebus: Republicans in blue states ‘ought to be’ rigging Electoral College

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus says that conservative lawmakers in blue states like Wisconsin “ought to be looking at” ways to rig the Electoral College system to tilt elections towards Republican candidates in a way that could have allowed presidential candidate Mitt Romney to win.

On Sunday, the Journal Sentinel reported that Priebus had called on states that traditionally vote for Democratic presidential candidates — but are controlled by Republican legislatures — to devise a scheme to split electoral votes instead of awarding them to a single candidate.

“I think it’s something that a lot of states that have been consistently blue that are fully controlled red ought to be looking at,” the RNC chairman explained, noting that such a system would give state lawmakers “more local control.”

3. This is why citizens need to pay attention to all state races, such as who is elected to their

Secretary of State who manages elections. And the number of pubs who lie and run on the Democratic ticket - then try to change parties if the Democrats get the majority. They are not discouraged by the media stories as Democrats are and fighting among themselves about anything related to winning elections and power. This is no time to get complacent or fight with each other. Because despite the cat fights we are being served with by the Washington media village to think they aren't going to vote lockstep, they are going to stay together.
