Texas remap gave GOP the House gain

How did the GOP gain seats in the House?


That's all.

Today, the 32-member delegation from Texas is evenly split, 16 to 16.

In January, it will be move to a 21-11 split.

Wow. Some mandate. It's a new map!

Why hasn't Illinois redrawn our congressional map (currently 9-10 in favor of the Republicans, soon to be 10-9 for the Dems because of Melissa Bean)? If for no other reason than to goad the Supreme Court into striking down both our new map and the Texas remap to put us on neutral ground.
