South Carolina definitely will get a seventh congressional district, according to Census information released today.
The long-awaited Census report, as expected, showed the states population grew while other states lost population.
S.C. lawmakers in coming months will decide where the districts boundaries will be. South Carolina's population grew 15.3 percent since 2000.
South Carolina's population was 4,625,364 as of April 2010.
South Carolina is among eight states -- in the Sun Belt and out West -- that will gain a congressional seat thanks to their population growth since 2000.
