Republican leaders are trying to get a new set of rules and rules for the 2016 presidential election to restore faith in the election process, according to The Hill.
In a letter to the Republican National Committee on Wednesday, the chair of the committee, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), said the GOP would seek “full compliance” with the 2020 campaign finance reform bill that passed the House in January.
“The American people deserve no less,” Meadows wrote.
Meadows added that the GOP “does not expect the American people to blindly follow the rules that were passed by the U.S. Senate.”
The GOP’s letter was the latest effort by party leaders to try to restore confidence in the Electoral College.
Republicans have been under intense pressure to make good on a promise to make the electoral college more fair.
The 2020 presidential race is expected to be the first time that Democrats will hold the White House since 1996.
It is also expected to mark the first presidential race in which the candidates will not participate in the state primaries.
Democrats have said they plan to continue to push for the Electoral Reform Act, which passed the Senate on Jan. 27 with bipartisan support.
But as the 2020 election nears, they say Republicans have failed to deliver on their pledge to enact meaningful changes to the system.
“We are committed to working with you and your leadership team to find the best path forward for the American People to vote for a president who will work for them, not against them,” Meadows said.
