A hearing at the state capitol Monday  seeks to put Connecticut on the record with other states calling for a national popular vote for president.

Supporters say it would stop Connecticut from being irrelevant in the national campaign —  pointing out that President Obama campaigned in eight states last year,  and Mitt Romney in ten,  because of their electoral votes.  Connecticut was not one of those states.

Among those scheduled to testify on SB432 are Secretary of the State Denise Merrill,  former UConn Law School Dean Hugh MacGill,  and the President of National Popular Vote,  Barry Fadem.
