Congressman Mo Brooks: Keeping Seven Congressional Seats is Great News for Alabama!
Washington, DC— Monday, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) celebrated the news that Alabama will keep seven Congressional seats despite our growing risk of losing a seat after the 2020 Census apportionment count.
Congressman Brooks said, “Alabama keeping our seven Congressional seats is great news for Alabama! Alabama was at serious risk of losing a Congressional seat. Fortunately, by the slimmest of margins, Alabama citizens filled out their census questionnaires at rates high enough to dodge a political bullet. Alabama losing a congressional seat not only would have significantly hurt our representation in Congress, it would also have reduced our impact on the election of presidents. Thank you Alabama citizens and all those public officials who worked so hard to make sure Alabama’s Census count was so good.”
