In 2012, there will be 11 states holding an election for Governor. Paying attention to these 11 winners will be important because odds are high that you will see future U.S. Senators, cabinet members and even names that will eventually appear on the ticket for president/vice-president.
In a few weeks I will go over the top gubernatorial contests this year and give you the likelihood that Republicans improve/Democrats gain on control of the highest state office (currently 29 Republican, 20 Democrat and 1 Independent).
