Reshaping S.C. politics: Detailed 2010 Census data due this week

Flickr user .m for matthijs

Data to be released by the U.S. Census Bureau this week will be key in drawing and weighting the political power in South Carolina for the next decade.

While it's well know that our state is due to get a 7th congressional district due to a 15.3% population explosion, the big change coming is just where that growth happened and that will dictate which parts of the state gain (or lose) influence. 

You can watch for that data to be released over here and in the embedded graphic below. 

If you'd prefer a bit more context, check out David Slade's piece over at The Post and Courier or our past report on the debate (and upcoming meetings.)
