The Republican and Democratic nominees for West Virginia governor both favor more single-seat House of Delegates districts.
Acting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin won the Democrats' nod in the May 14 primary. He says he supports single-delegate districts. But he also says he respects the Legislature's process for revising district boundaries in response to the 2010 Census.
Republican nominee Bill Maloney advocates individual districts for all 100 delegates. The Morgantown businessman said Tuesday he would veto any legislation falling short of that.
Lawmakers aim to vote on redistricting before the October 4 special election for governor. A Senate task force has been holding public hearings. The House announced a 30-member redistricting committee last week.
The House now has 36 single-member districts.
