Because they need him to get reelected. If you think for a moment that the job of any of these people (both D and R) is to represent their constituents-you're high! Their job is to GET RELECTED-PERIOD END OF REPORT! I have met many of the people (mostly through the Pharma PACs I was involved in). They want MONEY and they want VOTES ( we'll get to the issues later). If ever there was a time for term limits in a lot of things (SCOTUS, CONGRESS
,local shit too) IT IS NOW!
It is time for both spending limits and term limits- everyone would benefit. Popular vote good ,EC a complete waste of time and energy.
