Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, said late last week that we should scrap the the electoral college.Â
â€ś[I]â€™s pretty disappointing when you think that just a few states really determine whoâ€™s been elected president,â€ť she said Friday. â€śAnd they get all the attention.â€ť
Brewer said the 2000 election, in which Republican George W. Bush won the electoral college but not the popular vote, didn't change her mind.Â
â€śThereâ€™s upsides and downsides,â€ť she said.Â
The reliably Republican Arizona gets little attention in presidential elections, although Democrats have argued that an increasing Latino population means the state will one day beÂ competitive.
