House of Representatives – By State

January 9, 2009

There are 54 new Congresspeople in the House of Representatives. The following 20 states didn’t have any changes in their representatives:

  • Alaska (1 representative)
  • Arkansas (4)
  • Delaware (1)
  • Georgia (13)
  • Hawaii (2)
  • Indiana (9)
  • Iowa (5)
  • Massachusetts (10) (All Democrats)
  • Montana (1)
  • Nebraska (3)
  • New Hampshire (2)
  • North Dakota (1)
  • Oklahoma (5)
  • Rhode Island (2)
  • South Carolina (6)
  • South Dakota (1)
  • Vermont (1)
  • Washington (9)
  • West Virginia (3)
  • Wisconsin (8 )

California’s 4th district had two changes, though the party was the same, and other than that, the remaining 52 districts reelected the incumbent.

In addition to California, Kentucky, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Oregon, Tennessee, Utah and Wyoming had new people, but the parties remained the same. So that means that 29 of 50 states look exactly the same by party.

Of the 54 new representatives, 33 are Democrats and 21 are Republicans:

  • 26 switched from Republican to Democrat
  • 5 switched from Democrat to Republican
  • 17 stayed Republican
  • 6 stayed Democrat

New Mexico has three seats, and all of them are newly elected, with two seats changed from Republican to Democrat.

Here’s a list of the 2009-2010 House of Representatives.
