Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren Tuesday campaigned in Birmingham, a day after calling for an end to the Electoral College. "We can have national voting, and that means get rid of the Electoral College," the Massachusetts senator said at a CNN town hall event. Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan criticized the proposal. "She wants to 'get rid of the Electoral College', so that big cities like Los Angeles, New York and Chicago can pick our president," Lathan said. "She apparently thinks she knows better than our Founding Fathers, who in their infinite wisdom wove a perfect system. The Electoral College provides all Americans, even those living in smaller states like Alabama, a voice in the presidential process." Warren held an organizing rally at Boutwell Auditorium, a few hours after campaigning in Selma.
