That’s according to this Bloomberg account of the latest U.S. Census estimates, released today, that say that Texas gained more residents than any other state in the year leading up to July 1. That’s 478,000 more Texans. Our archenemy California was No. 2, with 381,000.
The official 2010 census numbers won’t be out until late next year, and we’ll find out for sure how many more seats our state might have. Then we’ll leave it to the wise men and women of the Texas Legislature to draw districts that represent our best interests and benefit all mankind.
