Did your state gain or lose?

Census numbers are out, so it's time for them to take away representatives from all the states that lost population and give them to the states that gained in population.

From CNN:

• Eight states will gain House members, including Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and Washington.

• Ten states will lose members in the House, including Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Then-candidate Barack Obama won eight of those states in 2008.

• Thirty-two states saw no gains in seats, including California. The solid blue state still has the largest congressional delegation with 53 seats.

  • I don't think we changed at all, but that surprised me a little since this area has had a lot of population growth and new businesses in recent years. Maybe other areas of the state had a big decline in population.
