Is balance tilting in GOP's favor?

Electoral College (illustrative)A former Texas Republican leader says it's too early to say for sure whether her state's two new congressional seats will be solidly Republican.

Thanks to the 2020 census, Texas will have more political clout in 2022 and 2024. The Lone Star State will gain two congressional seats, which means it will have two more Electoral votes.

Cathie Adams, a former chairman of the Republican Party of Texas, says there has been tremendous growth in her state.

"I think many people are leaving places like California that have been closed down, no business as usual -- and the state of New York," Adams submits. "But what we as Texans want most is that people come here as conservatives, people to come here who want jobs, who want to create an environment where jobs can be created, not to come here with the politics from New York or from California."

So Adams hopes that both new districts will be strongly Republican.

"The redistricting is being done in the state legislature right now, and so it's too early to really say," she tells One News Now. "But even in districts that have been traditionally Democrat, they are tending toward Republican among Hispanic communities, and so I certainly do hope that we can have both of these seats be Republican."
