RICHMOND,Va. (WTVR) - A coalition of five progressive groups gathered 18,000 signatures and delivered them to Governor Bob McDonnell's office. The group wants the governor to veto a bill that would change Virginia voting lines.

State Democrats said the bill would benefit the Republican party. Senate Republicans passed the bill 20 to19 on a day when one Democrat, Sen. Henry Marsh (D - Richmond), was in Washington D.C. for the Presidential Inauguration.

The group said there should have been more transparency with the process. Governor McDonnell is quoted as saying what the Republicans did was not a good way to do business, but has not said he will veto the bill.
