REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS ARE MAKING THEIR STATES GREAT AGAIN

Today, President Trump Will Host Governors For A Meeting At The White House. "Governors are scheduled to meet President Donald Trump at the White House on Monday, where gun laws will be a dominant topic." (Eric Bradner, "Republican Governors Want To Do Something On Guns. But What?," CNN , 2/24/18)

 The Top Ten Most Popular Governors In The U.S. Are All Republicans

All Of The Top Ten Most Popular Governors In America Are Republicans. ("America's Most And Least Popular Governors," Morning Consult , 2/1/18)

Being A Republican Governor Became So Favorable That In 2017 A Registered Democrat Switched Parties To Become A Registered Republican, Giving The Republican Party An Added Boost In Governorship

In 2017, West Virginia Governor Jim Justice Announced He Would Switch His Party Affiliation From Democrat To Republican. "West Virginia Governor Jim Justice announced at a campaign-style rally with President Trump on Thursday that he is switching parties from Democrat to Republican." (Clare Foran, "West Virginia Governor Switches From Democrat To Republican," The Atlantic , 8/3/17)

  • In Announcing His Decision, Governor Justice Stated He Couldn't "Help You [West Virginians] Anymore Being A Democrat Governor." "'I tell you as West Virginians I can't help you anymore being a Democrat governor,' Justice said at the rally standing on stage with the president. 'So tomorrow I will be changing my registration to Republican.'" (Clare Foran, "West Virginia Governor Switches From Democrat To Republican," The Atlantic , 8/3/17)

Governor Justice's Switch Meant Republicans Controlled "All Levels Of Government In 26 States Across The Country." "West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice's decision to leave the Democratic Party to become a Republican means the GOP now controls all levers of government in 26 states across the country, a high-water mark in recent years." (Reid Wilson, "Republicans Will Completely Control 26 States," The Hill , 8/3/17)

  • As A Result Of Justice's Switch, Republicans Held An "All-Time High" Of Governorships Since 1922. "With Justice's flip, Republicans now hold 34 governorships, matching the party's all-time high in 1922." (Kurtis Lee, "With Party Switch In West Virginia, Republicans Now Have Matched Record Number Of Governors' Seats. Will It Last?," Los Angeles Times , 8/4/17)
