2020 Presidential hopeful Mayor Pete Buttigieg on Sunday made his call go end the Electoral College.
South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) on Sunday made his call to scrap the Electoral College part of his 2020 campaign launch.
"We can't say it's much of a democracy when twice in my lifetime the Electoral College has overruled the American people," he said during a rally in South Bend as he officially announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020.
"Why should our vote in Indiana only count once or twice in a century? Or your vote in Wyoming or New York?" Buttigieg added.
Buttigieg first called for eliminating the Electoral College in January, saying it has damaged democracy in the U.S.
"We've got to repair our democracy. The Electoral College needs to go, because it's made our society less and less democratic," Buttigieg said at the time, during an appearance on "CBS This Morning."
Several other 2020 Democratic hopefuls have suggested it's time to eliminate the Electoral College, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) coming out strongly for the proposal and former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke and Sen. Kamala Harris (C-Calif.) indicating openness to the idea.
