Interesting topic tonight on Political Connections. This week we take a look at women in politics. There are a record number of female lawmakers this year and they are getting more powerful as well.
Rep. Jennifer Weiss and Ran Coble (did a recent analysis on the topic) join us in studio to take a half hour look at the issue.
It airs on News 14 tonight at 6 and again on Sunday at 11am.
Check it out!
By the way, an interesting note from an article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune today. It said Minnesota may lose a congressional seat after the 2010 census. He says they are in competition with Georgia, South Carolina, and you guessed it...North Carolina.
NC got a new seat after the 1990 and 2000 census (after a battle with Utah). It's part of a trend where populations are moving south and west from the midwest and northeast.
A late 2006 study has North Carolina staying at 13 and Georgia picking up one (14) and South Carolina on the border but recent population trends have Minnesota's demographer believing it's close with all these states.
I'm still waiting for our state demographer to call me back!
