New Hampshire has become the most reliably Republican state in the country, with four Republicans elected to the U.S. Senate.
The state is also home to some of the most conservative lawmakers in the nation, including Senate Majority Leader Scott Brown (R-Mass.), who has said he will “no longer” seek reelection in 2018.
The latest state-by-state rankings show New Hampshire’s Republican Senate is now headed for a record number of Republican governorships.
New Hampshire also has become home to a record amount of Democratic governorships, as governors in Texas, Ohio, and Missouri have all been elected to statewide office in the past two years.
As of today, there are 21 Republican governors in the United States.
As a result, the state has become a stronghold for the GOP in the Senate.
In the last three years, the average Republican senator has served in the state for less than a year, according to FiveThirtyEight.
The next-closest Republican senator in New Hampshire is former Rep. Michael Burgess (R), who served in New Hampshirom from 2003 to 2007.
Burgess is expected to run for governor in 2018, and he’s been endorsed by Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.).
New Hampshire Gov.
Maggie Hassan (D) is currently running for the seat left vacant when former Gov.
Bill Weld (R) stepped down following his indictment on corruption charges.
New Hamphires Democratic governor, Gina Raimondo, has also recently been tapped as a possible candidate for Senate.
She’s a strong supporter of the Affordable Care Act, which will be the law of the land in 2018 as lawmakers move to repeal it.
New York State has also become the GOP stronghold, as Republicans are expected to hold a majority in both chambers of the state legislature.
While the state is expected not to be a battleground for presidential elections, the Republican-controlled state legislature has passed several pieces of pro-Trump legislation.
The last one, which was approved by the Republican majority in the New York state Senate, passed the state’s “anti-LGBT” law, which allows businesses and individuals to refuse service to LGBT individuals.
New Yorkers overwhelmingly support the law, according the AP.
Despite that, the legislation has been blocked in the lower house, which has been led by Republican state Sen. Daniel Squadron, who has vowed to repeal the bill.
New Jersey has been home to three Democratic governors in recent years, all of whom have served for less, and both Gov.
Chris Christie (R-) and Lt.
Kim Guadagno (D-) have endorsed former Govs.
Phil Murphy (D), Jon Corzine (D)-the only Republican governor in the Garden State to win reelection in 2016.
The governor is running for reelection, and while the Republican Party has not endorsed him, he has made clear that he is not interested in a third term in office.
New Mexico has seen several Democratic governors elected to office in recent decades, and Gov.
Pete Wilson (D)’s term has been marked by several high-profile failures in the fight against the opioid crisis.
Wilson’s first term in the governorship ended in June 2019 when he resigned amid allegations that he failed to adequately respond to the outbreak.
The current Democratic governor has since called for an end to the opioid epidemic, which the governor has described as “a health crisis.”
Susana Martinez (D)* has called for a $2.5 billion funding increase to combat the opioid problem, while also supporting increased funding for public education.
However, the governor was defeated by the Democratic challenger in the 2020 gubernatorial race, former state Sen: Mark Herring (D).
While the Republican Governor’s office has not officially endorsed any of the Democrats vying for the office, Martinez has previously called for greater oversight of state agencies and has pledged to enact stricter gun control measures.
New Orleans is home to Louisiana’s two most Democratic governors, who have been in office since 2005, and former Mayor Mitch Landrieu (D.) is the state senate president.
Landrieux won reelection in 2020, and the city is a stronghold of the Democratic Party.
In 2017, Landrieucas Republican-led legislature passed the “No New Orleans” law which restricts the use of eminent domain in the city, which is now in place.
Landreau has also signed a bill banning cities from adopting anti-discrimination ordinances, while Governor John Bel Edwards (D*) has supported the state bill and has said it should be amended.
Landryans Democratic Governor has been criticized by the GOP for his stance on the anti-LGBT bill, which he vetoed in 2017.
Louisiana is also expected to elect a new Republican governor.
The first Republican governor to hold office since the passage of the “New Orleans Stabilization Act” in 2014 was former Gov.: Buddy Caldwell (R).
In 2019, Caldwell was the only Republican candidate to challenge the Republican governor for re-election.
Caldwell has not formally endorsed any Democratic candidates, but has
