Opinion: The road to abolish the Electoral College may just run through Texas

Freshmen House members Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Dan Crenshaw recently sparred over the merits of the Electoral College. Ocasio-Cortez claimed the Electoral College was “electoral affirmative action” for some voters (those in less populated states) over others (those in more populated states). Crenshaw countered abolishing the Electoral College would mean that “politicians will only campaign in (and listen to) urban areas. That is not representative democracy.”
