Western Dems Net 3 Governors in Top 10
Survey USA released its polling numbers for all 50 Governors earlier in the week, and those of us here at Western Democrat were not surprised to see 3 of our favorite governors in the top 10.
Climbing the ranks to #2 was Governor Brian Schweitzer of Montana, with a 76%/18% (approve/disapprove) rating. Governor Dave Freudenthal of Wyoming came in at #8, with a 66%/27% rating. Finally, cracking the top 10 at #10 was Governor Bill Richardson, chair of the Democratic Governors' Association, with a rating of 65%/32%.
An added bonus this week was Alaska's Republican governor finishing third in a primary, hopefully leaving such a putrid legacy that former Governor Tony Knowles will be able to reclaim his seat.
Your Personal Note:
It is also worth noting that the West overall is extremely represented in the top ten.
Here is how I see the breakdown:
Mountain West: 4
Pacific West: 1
South/South-East/Mid-Atlantic/Texas(a region unto itself): 0
Read that any way you'd like, but I think it is pretty incredible and says a ton about governance out west.

Dave Freudenthal for President! Screw Schweitzer, he hasn't done crap. Richardson's alright, except for his support of the "liberal blogosphere" aka "angry, bitter, white, middle-aged ultra-lefties that live in their parents basement."

Wow! It's great to see someone blogging about Wyoming ...even if it is coming out of Portland.

Kainah, If you hadn't seen it already, Landon covered the Wyoming Congressional race.

Kainah, who are you referring to? I'm blogging from Laramie, WY (if it was me).
