Judge rejects Electoral College lawsuit in Colorado: A political stunt

DENVER — It was a history lesson and a chance to make history in a federal courtroom this afternoon where a judge ruled how the Electoral College works — or doesn’t — will remain unchanged.

At least for now.

Around 5 p.m., U.S. District Judge Wiley Y. Daniel denied a temporary restraining order and an injunction to stop Colorado from enforcing a state law that says electors must vote for the presidential candidate who won the state.

The landmark lawsuit, brought by two Colorado electors, both Democrats, sought to declare the state law unconstitutional. They are former Democratic Sen. Polly Baca and Colorado Springs math teacher Bob Nemanich.
