Dozen governors’ races give Republicans shot at more gains

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Republicans, who already control a solid majority of governorships, are seeking to add to their ranks as voters pick chief executives in a dozen states.

Most of those states are currently led by Democrats.

Campaigns for governor shattered fundraising records in Missouri and drew national attention over transgender bathroom rights in North Carolina. In Indiana, Gov. Mike Pence pulled out to become the running mate of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Republicans currently hold 31 of the 50 governors’ offices. They hope to inch closer to their historical high of 34 set in 1922. Democrats are primarily on defense this year but still have a shot at flipping a couple of offices.
