Governorships a Big Opportunity for Democrats in 2014

Stu Rothenberg: "While the fight for the House of Representatives will take center stage next year, another battle could be almost as important for the two parties: control of a handful of big-state governorships."

"Republicans like to point out that while they lost the presidency and seats in both chambers of Congress in 2012, their party continues to hold governorships in 30 states, including nine of the country's 12 largest states. But most of those governors -- 23 to be exact -- were elected in 2010, a great GOP year that doesn't reflect the nation's (or many states') political fundamentals."
