The State Houses – What’s At Stake in 2010

Thirty-nine states will be electing a governor during the 2009-2010 election cycle. Of these, eighteen races will not include an incumbent and four incumbents who will be running were not elected to their current position. The recession and huge budget deficits threaten to undercut the power of incumbency for governors running for reelection.

WI: AdMonitor – Milwaukee Floods, Walker Flees

By · Jul, 30 2010

At least that’s the message from Democrat Tom Barrett’s latest campaign ad.

While southeastern Wisconsin was deluged by devastating summer flooding, Mayor Tom Barrett was on the scene overseeing response efforts. His potential Republican gubernatorial rival, Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker was MIA, campaigning in other parts of the Badger State.

The ad closes with the commentary “there’s more to being county executive, there’s more to being governor than ‘phoning it in.’”
