Senate targets voting process

first_imgMaryland became the first state to ratify the compact when its governor, Democrat Martin O’Malley, signed legislation approving the change last month. Action on the compact also is pending in a number of other states. The Senate approved Migden’s bill on a 22-14 vote and sent it to the Assembly. Schwarzenegger’s press secretary, Aaron McLear, said the Republican governor had not taken a position on it. Schwarzenegger vetoed an identical measure last year, saying it could result in the state’s electoral votes going to a candidate opposed by a majority of California voters. Supporters see the proposal as a way to avoid the situation that occurred in 2000 and three other times in American history, when the winner of the presidency did not win the popular vote. But Sen. Tom McClintock, R-Thousand Oaks, said enacting the bill would run “a very serious risk of disenfranchising our voters.” SACRAMENTO – For the second time in nine months, the state Senate has approved legislation that attempts to circumvent the Electoral College. But the bill approved Monday could be headed for another veto by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. The measure, by Sen. Carole Migden, D-San Francisco, would ratify an interstate compact under which states would agree to award their electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote, regardless of the preferences of their own voters. The compact would take effect only if enough states – those with a majority of votes in the Electoral College – agreed to its terms. Californians might strongly prefer one presidential candidate, only to see their electoral votes go to his or her opponent, he said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Liverpool boss hails last season’s defeat to Man United “best defeat” of career

first_imgLiverpool manager Brendan Rodgers rates last season’s 3-0 loss at Old Trafford as the best defeat of his career.The Reds created far more chances against Manchester United in December but the now-departed Raheem Sterling, in particular, found goalkeeper David de Gea, who is set for his first start of the season after signing a new contract after a failed transfer to Real Madrid, in top form.However, the reverse proved to be a catalyst as the Reds went on a 13-match unbeaten run in the league which was only ended by United at Anfield in March.It replicated a pattern which is developing with Rodgers’ teams which has seen them play their best football at the turn of the year.“It was probably the best defeat I’ve ever had,” said the Reds boss.“You never want to lose the game but I saw enough in that day to know we had actually got our identity back.“We should have scored goals but ultimately lost the game because we didn’t defend well enough.“From that moment we then kicked on and had a good spell.” Liverpool 1last_img read more

Gallegly fundraising healthy

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl eventTenenbaum, 37, an attorney from Westlake Village, put his name on the ballot for the 24th Congressional District race on March 10, after learning that Gallegly was about to retire. Gallegly did announce his retirement. But, after realizing his last-minute announcement was about to touch off a bizarre political situation in which Tenenbaum – a Gallegly critic and a political unknown – would be the only GOP candidate, Gallegly decided not to retire after all. In recanting his retirement, Gallegly promised that if he wins this election, it will be his last. On Friday, Gallegly said that proclaiming himself a lame duck from the beginning of the campaign has not hurt his image or his local fundraising efforts. “We’ve been very up front and very honest with everyone on this,” Gallegly said. He said the $87,864 he raised between Jan. 31 and March 31 was mostly from unsolicited donations. Tenenbaum’s challenge, Gallegly said, has not been a factor in his efforts. “We give 100 percent in everything that we’ve done. We don’t let someone else establish how we run our campaign,” he said. Gallegly has about $1.1 million cash on hand, an aide said. Tenenbaum filed his statement of candidacy – a form that every new candidate must fill out within 15 days of raising or spending $5,000 – on April 3. He has until April 23 to designate a principal campaign committee and disclose his donations, according to the FEC.

Liverpool dealt blow in pursuit of Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Christian Pulisic

first_img Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade REVEALED 3 Pulisic in action against the Reds in pre-season, where he scored two goals in a 3-1 win for Dortmund Dortmund are under no pressure to lose Pulisic in a Naby Keita-style deal targets But, according to Sky Sports, Borussia Dortmund will be under no pressure to agree to such a deal for their 19-year-old ace.Making his Dortmund debut at the age of just 16, Pulisic has made 97 appearances in two-and-a-half seasons in their first-team, scoring 12 goals.But he has just two years remaining on his contract at the Westfalenstadion, and it has been suggested that could see Dortmund cashing in over the next 12 months, instead of risking losing him for nothing.But, Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge believes Liverpool will not be the only candidate should Dortmund choose to sell, as Pulisic will have plenty of suitors from across Europe.Speaking on the Sky Sports Transfer Talk podcast, he explained: “Keita had the £48million release clause which kicked in this summer and Liverpool paid a premium on that to secure him.“Leipzig were destined to lose him anyway, but Dortmund aren’t in that position with Pulisic. Liverpool will NOT be able to sign Borussia Dortmund’s American wonderkid Christian Pulisic in a Naby Keita-style deal, according to reports. 3 Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January Christian Pulisic has been linked with Liverpool, Chelsea and Real Madrid Tony Cascarino backs Everton to sign two strikers for Carlo Ancelotti Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is a big fan of the 19-year-old star and has made no secret of his interest in the past, while Chelsea and Real Madrid have also been linked.Liverpool have been actively tracking the youngster’s progress in Germany and even made an £11million offer back in 2016, which was rejected by the Bundesliga club.Pulisic’s value has increased dramatically since, with the USA international now said to be rated at €65million by Dortmund.Liverpool had been linked with making a summer bid for the starlet – who scored two goals against the Reds in a pre-season friendly – while there have been suggestions they could look to secure his signature in a similar deal which saw Keita move to Anfield this summer after agreeing to move from RB Leipzig last year. Cavani ‘agrees’ to join new club and will complete free transfer next summer Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ moving on RANKED The biggest market value losers in 2019, including Bale and ex-Liverpool star “He is some player. You’d imagine him having interest from all the top European clubs.“But, Jurgen Klopp absolutely gets a player when he likes them.”The Reds have already spent around £175m this summer on big-name signings including Alisson, Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri.However, their spending has been offset by the sale of Philippe Coutinho in January and their profitable run to last season’s Champions League final.And with that money, plus this season’s transfer budget, still in the bank, it is difficult to rule out another approach from the Reds for Pulisic.
