Re-Districting Update

Earlier this morning, I called attention to the importance of the upcoming midterms for the re-districting that will happen once the Census results are in. The last report I had seen had Texas gaining three seats. According to a report in Politico this morning, that number is up to four and Florida is slated to pick up two more seats.

Most of the states slated to pick up seats have large and growing Latino populations, which means that the GOP's hostility to Latinos is a form of electoral suicide. As I predicted, Texas is going to look a whole lot more purple in the years ahead.
