Well, if one factors in state ares, California is similar to the area of NH, VT, MA, RI, CT, NY, NJ, PA, MD, & DE. combined, and the geographical center of this group is a shorter distance than CA. My point being, we can make different logic work to favor different outcomes. I think the intent of this drive would be defeated by such efforts, and future drives can accommodate different measures. Another, and very difficult measure, would be by metropolitan regions. ha ha.
