Title
Paul Rodriguez and Rocky Chavez on Why California Republicans Need a Popular Vote for President

Comedian Paul Rodriguez and politician Rocky Chavez join Equal Citizens’ Jason Harrow for a discussion about why they support a popular vote for President as California Republicans—and why they joined Equal Citizens’ lawsuit trying to abolish winner-take-all for just that reason. They also discuss why they are in the minority as Latino Republicans, how the need to raise money makes it hard for politicians to respond to constituents’ needs, and more.
