(AP) — The first numbers from the 2020 census are out and they show Republican-controlled Southern and Western states gaining congressional seats.

Florida and North Carolina picked up one each. In contrast, Michigan, New York and Ohio each lost a seat. So did California — losing a seat for the first time ever.
