Republican Governors Are Gearing Up For Re-Election Bids

From The Huffington Post
Republican governors took over statehouses across the country after the 2010 elections and immediately acted on promises to usher in a new era of budget cutting and conservative labor policies. Public backlash followed just as quickly; they watched their popularity drop while Democrats talked of political retribution. But now, as they gear up for their re-election campaigns, many GOP governors – particularly those across the upper Midwest – find themselves in positions of strength, having benefited from improving economies if not changes of heart over their policies.
