Mark Obenshain, Ralph Smith, Jill Holtzman Vogel, and Jeff McWaters:
I would like to thank you four Virginia Senate Republicans for killing SB723 (allocate electoral votes by congressional district); while this bill would have benefited Republicans in last November's presidential election, it was, in my opinion, an unethical law that would preempt the democratic principle of "one person, one vote" that keeps our great republic together.
I believe a lot of Americans share fundamentally conservative principles: hard work, integrity, strong marriages and families, taking responsibility, and knowing there is no such thing as a free lunch. I am very pleased to see you all having the integrity to vote against SB723. Even though it probably makes it harder for the Republican party to secure the white house again in the short term, it benefits the Republican party in the long term because it shows how much integrity its members can have.
