Iowa Congressman Steve King wants the U.S. to maintain the Electoral College system that elects presidents.

Legislatures in more than a dozen states have passed laws to award their electoral college votes to the candidate who wins the most votes nationwide.

OC………the urban interests.” ;10

King was asked about the national “popular vote” movement during a town hall meeting Tuesday in Hornick.

The effort has gained steam since both George Bush and Donald Trump got fewer votes than their opponents, but won the presidency after winning enough states to win the Electoral College.

King says if the Electoral College system is eliminated, the presidential candidates would ignore small states like Iowa and concentrate on winning big in big states.

OC…….going now.” :06

King been traveling the Fourth Congressional District, holding a town hall meeting in each of the 39 counties in the district.
