OCALA, Fla. (WCJB)-- Ocala State Senator Dennis Baxley filed a resolution to support the electoral college in presidential elections.

The resolution calls for the Senate to support the Constitution's 12th Amendment, which established the modern electoral college.

This comes as a number of states have signed on to the 'National Popular Vote Interstate Compact,' an agreement to award a state's electoral college votes to the candidate winning the national popular vote.
