Census 2010 shows red states gaining congressional seats

The congressional map continued to shift toward red states Tuesday, as the U.S. Census Bureau released new apportionment data. The census data, in a process that takes place once every 10 years, reshuffled the number of seats in Congress for 18 states, based on population gains and losses. Most states gaining seats went for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in the 2008 presidential election, while almost all states that lost seats were won by President Obama - many of them in the Rust Belt.

Pence for governor? Indiana Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman bows out

Indiana Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman said Monday that she will not run for governor in 2012, leaving a opening that many expect will now be filled by Rep. Mike Pence. The Republican congressman has been eyeing a presidential campaign, but sources in Indiana are now expecting him to run for governor.
