    ..Virginia is also opposed to this electoral gerrymandering scheme.
    GOP senators will oppose Va electoral change - Updated: Jan 25, 2013 10:13 AM PST  

    Virginia's General Assembly is the first of several Republican-ruled legislatures from Wisconsin to Pennsylvania - states President Barack Obama won last fall - to address such legislation. Democrats denounce it as a Republican election-rigging scheme.

    Republican Sen. Jill Vogel said she'd oppose the measure in a Senate committee Tuesday and on the floor should it get that far. GOP Sen. Ralph Smith of Roanoke also will oppose it.

    So the launch of this effort (and it's spreading across battleground or targeted blue states with republicans governors & legislatures) looks like it may end up stalled in the earlier states attempingt it.
    Kind of a nice surprise that there are republicans breaking lockstep and resisting this unfairness.

    All states do it with NPV or none - fair is fair
