US Constitution survives another end run

Daryl Montgomery and Jack Kemp
The end run attempt around the Constitution has fallen down - for now. From the Rocky Mountain News:
The State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee voted 10-1 to kill Senate Bill 46.

It would have put Colorado in an interstate agreement to elect the president by popular vote, instead of the electoral system currently in place.
The measure would have allocated Electoral College votes to the winner of the national popular vote total, rather than the winner of Colorado's voting majority.

It was a terrible idea, and we are fortunate that Colorado has rejected it. The Founders knew what they were doing when they created the Electoral College.

(Jack Kemp is not the politician of the same name.)
