GOP Looking For Big Gubernatorial Gain

Ad Feedback

Thirty-seven states will hold elections for their individual governors on Tuesday.
The newly elected gubernatorial class could have a critical say in implementing President Obama's health care reform.

Currently, Democrats hold 26 state houses, Republicans hold 23 and independents one. In the 37 contests for governor, 19 seats are held by Democrats, 17 by Republicans and independents hold one.

Republicans are looking for a net pickup of up to 12 state houses. Democrats have a shot at ousting GOP governors in California, Hawaii, Vermont and Minnesota and holding onto New York, Maryland, Colorado, New Hampshire and Arkansas.

CBN News Political Editor John Waage has predicted the GOP will take 29 governorships, Democrats will have 20 and independents will hold one.
