Governor Stitt‚Äôs spokeswoman, Donelle Harder, said, ‚ÄúOur hope is to have interviews done and have this completed by the end of the year.‚ÄĚ

While many other states have also set up these types of offices in the nation’s capital, it is yet another illustration that the 17th Amendment, added to the U.S. Constitution in 1913, during the midst of the Progressive Era, delivered a severe blow to the system of federalism created by the framers of the U.S. Constitution.

This journalist is na√Įve; I don't think repealing the 17th Amendment would solve anything today. State legislatures can be just as idiotic and depraved as voters, as evidenced by CA, IL, NY.
