Missouri loses congressional seat, and Democrats are likely the losers

Missouri, you’re the political loser of the day. The Show-Me State is losing a congressional seat (as well as one vote in the Electoral College) come 2012 after Census Bureau figures were released Tuesday (Illinois also lost a seat, but they’ll still have 18).

Missouri will drop from nine to eight congressional seats, and you can bet statehouse Republicans have their redistricting pens aimed at a Democratic seat and an incumbent is going to be out of work.
