“Romney on election reform: I never got a call from the White House”


Sen. Mitt Romney said Sunday that he “never got a call from the White House” to negotiate bringing Republicans and Democrats together to create bipartisan voting reform.

The Utah Republican lamented the lack of bipartisanship on the pivotal issue of voting rights, saying, “We can work together on almost every issue where there’s common ground.”…

Romney’s solution — and that of about 12 other senators, both Republicans and Democrats — is to reform the Electoral Count Act. That 1887 law governs how members of Congress handle Electoral College results. But, he said, “An effort to really work at a bipartisan basis hasn’t happened yet.”
