How many representatives in Congress from the state of Tennessee?

Hi Everyone:

        I was discussing politics with a friend of mine earlier today and the topic of representatives within Congress came up.  Basically, we are wondering how many representatives within Congress which are from Tennessee.  

       Any help on this political question will be appreciated.  Thanks in advance for any help rendered to this post.

      Thanks

      George

Hi George,

Leew ALMOST got it right.   Tennessee has HAD 10 congressional districts;  but at the present time only has 9.   So there are 9 Representatives (the term for members of the House) and 2 Senators -- a total of 11 members of the Tennessee Congressional Delegation.

Here's the current list:  http://www.visi.com/juan/congress/cgi-bin/newseek.cgi?site=ctc&state=tn

Are you asking how many people are in the House of Representatives, the Senate, or both?  (Congress consists of both).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/US_Congress

The Senate consists of two persons from each state.
The House consists of 435 members, minimum of 1 per state, otherwise allotted to states based on the percentage of population.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_House_of_Representatives.

For Tennessee, the state has 10 congressional districts at the present time (10 representatives, one for each district)

You know, I looked across and I saw 10 - didn't look at the table headers on top - read the 1910 value.

Something didn't seem right to me because they had 11 electoral votes in 2004 - 2 Senate and 10 HoR = 11?  that didn't make sense...
