Large Number of Democrats from Just Two States

Smart Politics finds that when the 113th Congress convenes in January, 29.4% of the Democratic caucus will hail from either California or New York  -- up from a previous all-time high of 28.1% recorded after the Republican tsunami of 2010.

"While California and New York are two of the three most populous states in the country, it is important to note that the number of representatives from the two states collectively has remained relatively flat over the last 50 years. Since 1962, New York and California have accounted for between no less than 18.2 percent and no more than 19.1 percent of all seats in the nation's lower legislative chamber."
