Data from 2020 census means California will lose a congressional seat, could help GOP take the House

Data released Monday from the U.S. Census Bureau could help put Republicans over the top in their quest to retake the House of Representatives in 2022.

After a year that saw many of the state’s residents fleeing to more conservative states, California is set to lose a congressional for the first time in its history, The Daily Wire reported.

Redistricting is done in the state by the voter-approved California Citizens Redistricting Commission and will not begin until the fall. The 45th district seat, currently held by Democrat Katie Porter, is most likely to see redrawing because it is overpopulated.

Redistricting

It’s uncertain where cuts to the 45th district will come from and and into which new district those voters will be placed. According to The Orange County Register, if the southern part of Porter’s district goes to the 49th district, which is only nominally Democrat, it could help turn the district Republican with a strong candidate like Brian Maryott or Christopher Rodriguez challenging Democratic Rep. Mike Levin.

Republicans are determined to retake the House in 2022, and are only six seats away from doing so currently.

Besides California, the states of New York, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia each lost a seat. Texas gained two seats, and Colorado, Florida, Montana, North Carolina and Oregon each gained one.

If the House can be flipped red, it will short-circuit the Democratic agenda of President Joe Biden and Congress, which has already bypassed the Senate filibuster to pass the $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill and plans to do so again with trillions more in spending.

It will also remove the risk of Democrat bills passing unobstructed by eliminating the Senate filibuster.

Manchin stands by filibuster

Most Democrats who prevailed on Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to keep the filibuster when they were in the minority have now come out in favor of ditching it, a partisan move that would have been quickly punished just a few decades ago.

Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) are the two main opponents to getting rid of the filibuster, and Democrats would need every single vote in the 50-50 Senate plus Vice President Kamala Harris as tie-breaker to make that happen.

Manchin said over the weekend that he is adamant about not “blowing up the Senate” and strongly favors keeping the filibuster in place, Fox News reported.

“I am not going to be part of blowing up this Senate of ours or basically this democracy of ours or the republic that we have,” Manchin told CNN.

  1. The democommunists are getting more and more desperate to keep their POWER and CONTROL over the American people. They will attempt any and all methods to “change the rules in the middle of the game”, in an effort to retain their STRANGLEHOLD on this country, and the citizens. As ANYONE can clearly see my friends, the TYRANNICAL democommunists are pushing for TOTAL communist control, turning this country into a third-world, banana republic “one party RULE” CESSPOOL, and the citizens into CONTROLLED, OVERTAXED, and OVER-REGULATED “subjects” of the communist party.
    WISE UP and RESIST the COMMUNIST TAKEOVER, before we no longer HAVE a country.

  2. The Demorats Governors are more to blame than anything. We know that Colorado would never have elected a person to Congress if things were on the Up and UP. HIckenpooper is nothing but the face of the Communist Party. Our Governor Polis had to pushed a bunch of buttons and no recount. HIckenpooper became a Senator, he wasn’t even a good Governor. Why we would want him as a Senator? Another piece of crap in Washington getting more money and more money and more power. Sentaor Bennet needs to be put out of our Misery. He is a well known liar and thief. Sucks up to Hilary.
