Texas +4

As I am back to posting again, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention a report that puts numbers to just how big a winner Texas will be in the next reapportionment.

Texas picks up 4 seats. By contrast, the only other states to pick up seats are Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Arizona, Utah, Nevada and Washington. They each pick up a single seat. Ohio loses 2. Losing 1 is Lousiana, Indiana, Michigan, New York, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

As to partisan balance in the US House, that should swing seats to the GOP by at least 5 seats. The Ohio governor's race will have a significant impact on the final number...as will the Texas gubernatorial race.
