West Virginia's congressional lines aren't going to change much -- in fact the district of freshman Wheeling Republican David McKinley won't change at all.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The Senate Redistricting Task Force discarded plans Thursday to put Republican incumbents Shelley Moore Capito and David McKinley into the same congressional district.
The group also abandoned plans to allow congressional lines to divide Kanawha County in half.
Instead, after weeks of talk and wrangling, the 17-member committee voted to go for the easiest plan: move Mason County from Capito's more populous district into Democratic Rep. Nick Rahall's less populous district. McKinley's district would remain as-is.
