NV Democrat Doesn’t Know How Many People Are In Congress

Nevada Democrat Lucy Flores, who is running in a four-way primary to represent the 4th Congressional District, may need a refresher course in civics. Over the weekend, Flores attended a candidate forum and didn’t know how many Members of Congress there are.

“And to this day, across the country there’s still about 5,000 state legislators, there’s only less than 80 who are Latinas who are serving in state legislatures. In Congress, there’s only nine out of four hundred and fifty-some-odd Congress people.”

For the record, there are 435 members in the House of Representatives. 541 if you include the Senate and non-voting members. So she’s wrong on both counts.
