After the release of the most recent census, New York’s Congressional delegation will be losing one seat after the 2022 election. Rumors have swirled before about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez losing her seat, but it was because she “was at such strong odds with Pelosi and other establishments Dems” according to WayneDupree.com.
Town Hall reported blue states are losing seats and red states are gaining them:
It was a rather alarming piece of news regarding congressional reapportionment. Blue states are losing seats and red states are gaining them. The Trump bastions are increasing their clout in Congress. How dare people move to states that are friendlier to their pocketbooks. This is happening and New York is about to lose a congressional seat. Who will get the axe? Will it be Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?
We’ve discussed how her biggest enemy isn’t Republicans, it’s the New York Democratic Party who aren’t too keen to her brand of politics. She might be eyeing launching a primary challenge against Chuck Schumer. She could run for governor. For Ocasio-Cortez, the sky is the limit, and while she might challenge Schumer anyway, keeping her district from the shredder could entice her to sit out 2022, maybe.
Axing her district would release her into the wild where she’s more unpredictable. She very well could run in a neighboring district and win. Who knows? But why is this happening in New York? Why are they losing a seat?
The New York Times reports:
New York’s congressional delegation will shrink by one seat after the 2022 election…but the state came excruciatingly close to snapping an eight-decade streak of declining representation in Washington: it was 89 residents short, to be precise…
It was the narrowest margin by which a state lost a seat in the modern era, according to census data. The next closest call was in 1970 when Oregon fell short by 231 residents…
And it means that New York’s congressional delegation will continue a steady decline in size that began in the 1940s when the state boasted 45 members of the House. Now it will have only 26.
