"Republican-leaning Texas will gain four seats in the next Congress while Democratic-leaning states will lose some. Overall, 12 seats, affecting 18 states, will shift. California adds no seats, in the first time in the state's history."

"The shift of 12 seats, affecting 18 states, gives Republicans a larger-than-expected edge in upcoming congressional and presidential elections.

New York and Ohio will lose two seats, according to the Census Bureau. Florida gains two seats, making it equal with New York for the first time in history."
