Texas Will See Dramatic Gain in US House Seats

Friday, 03 Dec 2010 07:03 AM

AUSTIN, Texas — 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 even four seats in Congress, as population trends continue to push people out of the rust -and -snow belts and into the sunbelt, demographers say. With strong GOP majorities in the Texas capitol and all statewide offices in their fold, Republicans are sure to use their new clout to cement their hold on power through the redistricting process and possibly increase their Congressional majority in the House.
