    Their problem is that teh republican base is a minority even in Virginia.  So, unless they can prevent a significan number of American citizens in VA from voting they are going to loose.  They have the state gerymandered so that the extremist GOPosaurs will still control or nearly control the legislature, but the Gov, Lt. Gov and AG are elected by state wide popular vote.  It is a gage of how undemocratic the state government is when you get the top jobs in one party and the legislature in the other.
