I hadn't been hearing many groans from Pennsylvania Democrats about this, and now I see why.
Gov. [Tom] Corbett, a key supporter of the idea, suggested Monday that it was going nowhere for the time being.
"I see no movement on it. I'm not going to push for movement, but I still support it," Corbett, a Republican, told a Pennsylvania Press Club luncheon.
After an October hearing, where this plan and the popular vote plan (to opt out of the electoral college if a majority of states did) got chewed over by political scientists, there's been no movement on the bill. A clone plan in Wisconsin hasn't gone anywhere, either. In two states where Democrats can't really lose without losing the entire general election, the electoral votes are staying en bloc.
