Red-leaning Sun Belt states stand to gain seats in the House of Representatives from the 2020 US Census, whereas California, New York, and Rust Belt states stand to lose at least one seat in the lower chamber of Congress.

Election Data Services Analysis of the Census Bureau has projected pending changes to congressional delegations from its outstanding Census Data. Seats in the House of Representatives are determined relative to a state’s population.

Texas is easily the biggest winner of the Census takeaway, with the Lone Star State standing to receive a whopping three new members of Congress in 2022. Florida comes in second place, receiving two.

New York sadly stands to lose two seats in the House, a development that comes as the Empire State leads the nation in population decline, fueled by an exodus of the middle class tax base and a devastating outbreak of the coronavirus.

The left-wing Democrat approach of governance appears to be paying off in California, as well, with the once seemingly endlessly dynamic state standing to lose a seat. California’s population did not decline in 2020, but it incurred its lowest growth in population since the year 1900, with major businesses and the middle class fleeing a troubled state some have likened to to a Venezuela-style homeless encampment.

Politically, the states that stand to lose seats in the 118th Congress lean Democrat, whereas the big winners voted for Donald Trump in the 2020 Presidential election. Ohio and West Virginia are the only two red states that stand to lose one House seat each, with eight others losing seats going to Biden. Of the states that are gaining seats, four are Republican and three are Democrat- with Florida and Texas both gaining more than one seat.

Not every state that stands to lose a seat declined in population. States such as Pennsylvania and Ohio have increased in population, while not growing as fast as the rest of the country.

Losing a congressional seat can send state politics into a tailspin, with current US representatives jockeying and in some cases running in primaries against one another in hopes of hanging on to territory that was once their former constituency.

PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks

The Democrat complained about masks.

New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.

Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”

This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.

Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.

Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.

Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
