TRUMP: Electoral issue unsettled

September 19, 2018 at 5:00 am

Clearly, Mary Smith shows in her letter to The Press, Sept. 14, earnest belief that the Electoral College did the job required of it in the 2016 election and she explains in detail why and how that’s so. But so what? It’s a non sequitur. It...
