The Establishment's 2020 Pick? Beto O'Rourke Campaign Raises Big Money

"The Democrats are getting very 'strange.' They now want to change the voting age to 16, abolish the Electoral College, and Increase significantly the number of Supreme Court Justices. Actually, you've got to win it at the Ballot Box!"

Leading Democrats -including Beto O'Rourke and Elizabeth Warren- called for the abolishment of the Electoral College this week while Speaker Pelosi threw her support behind lowering the national voting age to "capture kids" in high school.

Securing 270 electoral votes wins the presidency.

He likened the popular vote and electoral college to "training for the 100 yard dash vs. a marathon".

In the early primary state of Iowa, O'Rourke said on March 15 that expanding the Supreme Court needs to be explored: "What if there were five justices selected by Democrats, five justices selected by Republicans, and those 10 then picked five more justices independent of those who chose the first 10?"

"Warren went on to say that states like MS should consider moving to the national popular vote because "candidates don't come to places like MS", or non-swing states that aren't considered consequential".

America's founding fathers instituted the Electoral College to protect the nation from a large faction of voters who might want to introduce tyranny.

President Trump also says he guarantees the Supreme Court won't be expanded for six years, while he's in office. But rather than pass a constitutional amendment, these legislatures are joining the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, a group of states that pledge to give their electoral votes to the victor of the national popular vote.

The O'Rourke campaign says the El Paso native will visit every county in New Hampshire in just 48 hours.

He continued, "I'll tell you what, in my hope state of Texas, we have shut down, our state legislature our governors, more than half the family planning clinics in our state, making it that much harder for women to get a cervical health screening, see a family planning provider or see a provider of any kind".

White House contender Sen.

"No, I wouldn't entertain that", Trump said. "You gave me a good excuse to be out of school".
