Would Illinois be down by two Congressional seats if it weren't for Latinos?
Check out this post from Capitol Fax. They talk about the reapportionment that was announced yesterday. Illinois has had 19 Congressional districts for the past ten years. Now we'll be down to 18. Apparently our state's population has grown, but not to the extent that it has in some of the Southern and Southwestern states.
