Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Texas Will See Dramatic Gains in US House Seats: "Fast-growing Texas is poised to be the biggest winner of all when it comes to picking up influence in Congress in the next few years, and Republicans are salivating at the prospect of fattening the largest GOP delegation in Washington.

Texas will gain at least three and possibly four seats in Congress, as population trends continue to push people out of the rust and snow belts and into the sunbelt, demographers say."

I though the rise in population in Texas had been offset by its number of executions.

Just great. So not only is New York losing 1-2 seats (maybe even 3) but we're losing them to Texas?

Sh!t.
