John Deeth Blog: Jochum has National Popular Vote bill

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

Seems I spoke to soon on the National Popular Vote bill. The Reg says
Pam Jochum is introducing it in the Senate this session, though the
Legislature site doesn't have it posted yet. The Republican bloggers
are quickly opposing the idea and putting it in partisan light, though
at least now they acknowledge what happened in 2000. David Chung at
Hawkeye GOP: Gronstal is suggesting and end run around the
Constitution. Of course all of this is in response to the 2000
election where George W. Bush lost the popular vote but became
president after winning in the Electoral College. Not only does
Gronstal not respect the Constitution -- he also does not respect
Iowans. Electoral College reform was a nonstarter for eight years
because it required admitting to at least part of the injustice of
Bush taking office with fewer votes than Gore.
