GOP Senate Candidate Frank Addivinola Blasts "National Popular Vote" Move

GOP State Senate candidate Frank Addivinola criticizes the legislature's approval of the so-called "National Popular Vote" Measure Intended to run around the Electoral College.

Beacon Hill lawmakers that supported this new bill suggest that this system is fairer than the current Electoral College system and would ensure that each individual vote across the country will be of equal importance. In fact, this law tells Massachusetts voters that regardless of which candidate the majority of the state supports, all electoral votes of this state will go to the candidate that had the most support in other states. This means that if Massachusetts citizens vote differently than the rest of the country, this law literally nullifies our votes.
