DC already has EC representation. Getting DC and PR isn't about the EC, it's about the Senate. 4 new Democratic Senators. It's the right thing, because these folks are Americans, but they don't have representation in the House and Senate. But more urgently important than that, the future of this country is in immediate mortal danger, due to the corruption and immorality of the present version of the Republican party, and the undemocratic nature of the Senate. Adding PR and DC as states doesn't fix this, but it helps balance against it in a pretty significant way.

In short, the country is fucked if we don't fight with every weapon available against the corrupt, immoral GOP. Adding these states is probably the most powerful weapon, short term, and thus must be the first priority.
