1. Any such bill would end up being challenged in the courts and, unless definatively struck down early

, would end up as a Supreme Court case.

From US Term Limits v. Thorton ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Term_Limits%2C_Inc._v._Thornton ):

the Framers understood the Elections Clause as a grant of authority to issue procedural regulations, and not as a source of power to dictate electoral outcomes, to favor or disfavor a class of candidates, or to evade important constitutional restraints.
