I think that would be preferable. It would certainly save the taxpayers money if they dont have to pay for another election, said Phil Johnston, former chairman of the Massachusetts Democratic Party.
Someone should have asked him if he would support overturning the 17th amendment. I'm sure his dance would have been worth the price of admission.

Hate to be a nit pick, Amendments aren’t over turned, they are superceded or depracated. Laws are over turned. Judges can’t overturn Amendments.

if he would support overturning the 17th amendment...
If he had his druthers, he'd take the option to overturn it (for candidate X) and then re-instate it (for candidate Y). And so on, as needed.
It's as clear as DAY to me that, given 100% dems in power, we'd have outright totalitarianism, tyranny, communism, stagnant economy and widespread misery. Given 100% repubs in power, even with a good smattering of rino's, we'd have a humming constitutional republic with individual freedom and property rights and a vibrant economy.
