Haskell Exasperated by Boucher’s Vote Against National Popular Vote
New Canaan, CT— State Senate candidate Will Haskell criticized his opponent, Sen. Toni
Boucher, for her vote against the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact on Saturday.
Boucher joined 13 other Republican state senators in opposing the bill, which ultimately passed.
“America's electoral college is a constitutional relic. Because of it, Connecticut and other
non-swing states are left out of the national conversation during presidential campaigns,” Haskell
said. “Sen. Boucher’s opposition to this compact neglects the thousands of constituents in the
26th district who expect a full and equal role in deciding America’s next president.”
The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact is an agreement between several U.S. states to
jointly cast their electoral college votes for the presidential candidate who wins the popular vote.
The compact has already been passed in ten states and the District of Columbia.
Haskell is eager to stay in close touch with constituents and urges any resident of the 26th district to give him a call on his cell phone at 203-856-0873. For more information about Will’s
