"Senator Feinstein Calls for Abolishing the Electoral College And Establishing Direct Popular Election of the President"

The following press release arrived via email (and does not yet appear to be on the Senator's website):

    U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today announced that she will introduce a resolution to abolish the Electoral College and provide for the direct popular vote of the President. Senator Feinstein's announcement comes against the backdrop of a bid in California to qualify a ballot initiative that would skew the outcome of Presidential elections.....

The Senator also released a press release, "Senator Feinstein Co-Sponsors Bill To Reform The Presidential Primary Process by Creating A Rotating Regional Primary System, Will hold September hearing at Senate Rules and Administration Committee."
