With a couple more debates at the end of the month, every Democrat presidential candidate continues jockeying for position, and part of Pete Buttigieg’s new plan contains a proposal that sounds familiar:
“These inequalities were created intentionally by racist policies. Reversing them will also require us to act with intention," Buttigieg said. https://t.co/jXZLFi47Y8

There are other elements to Buttigieg’s “Frederick Douglass Plan,” but one of them you’ve heard a lot since Hillary Clinton’s loss in November of 2016:
His plan includes a significant increase in funding for public education; eliminating racial biases in the health care industry; strengthening infrastructure for black business owners and entrepreneurs; ending voter suppression; even providing D.C. with statehood and doing away with the electoral college.
Does anybody want to let Mayor Pete know what would be involved in eliminating the Electoral College?
