Current Party Numbers in the House

With the resignation of Congressman Randy “Duke” Cunningham from the House, the party numbers in the House are:

  • Republicans 230
  • Democrats 202
  • Independents 1
  • Vacancies 2

See our Congress by the Numbers.
The Clerk of the House shows different figures (only 1 vacancy, due to the resignation of Christopher Cox on August 2, 2005 to become chairman of the SEC) because the House is currently not in session and thus can not technically “receive” Cunningham’s resignation.
