Republicans flip three governors’ seats

Chris SununuDENVER | Republicans built on their gubernatorial and legislative dominance in Tuesday’s elections, shrugging off an onslaught of Democratic spending to flip three governors’ seats.

Buoyed by the political wave created by Republican President-elect Donald Trump and dissatisfaction with rising health care costs under Obamacare, GOP candidates wrested control of gubernatorial seats in Missouri, New Hampshire and Vermont.

Those victories raised the party’s total from 31 to 33, the largest number of GOP governors since 1922, according to the Republican Governors Association.

The Republicans’ big night came even though Democrats, who have vowed to reverse their decline in the states, outspent the GOP by $2.5 million in television ads, according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis.

Four years ago, Republican candidates and committees outspent Democrats by $20 million in state contests.

    Good .. But we LOST two Senate Seats by having TWO IDIOTS not allowing TRUMP to Save their ASSES… Nevada and NH…

      Kelly Ayotte from N.H. was a Rino from the get go. N.H. may actually be better off but we did lose that Senate seat.

      • The Redhawk

        I’l take a RINO over a Progressive Anarchist….One can NEGOTIATE with a RINO but never with a LIBERAL ANARCHIST ( look at what they are calling for:” BLOOD IN THE STREETS” over losing an Election… WAKE UP

      Here in AZ, McCain won by a landslide but it was probably because no one wanted to see Ann Kirkpatrick get that Senate Seat. But what stinks is she gets to retain her Representative Seat which I and others think she should have relinquished her seat when she chose to tun for the Senate. These Law Makers maje the laws to suit themselves not we the people. Jeff Flake is the other Senator and he decided not to back Trump. But he comes up for reelection win 2 or 4 years, 4 I think. What the hell is wrong with the so-called leaders of our Country? Many of them could not lead a Boy or Girl Scout Troop. It boggles the mind.
      ps. It would not surprise me if she were to run against Flake but he is a Rino.

      • The Redhawk

        Leadership starts in the VOTING BOOT just like Term Limits and being Involved in Choosing candidates in between ELECTIONS… Flake is a MORON who should Never have been Elected and MC Cain should retire.. who does AZ have to replace either or Both????

        • David Tierney

          There are a few State Reps with good names and results. Paul Gosar andcMatt Salmon are two that I really like. Trent Franks is another. One other is David Schweikert. These guys I would trust and hopefully soon one of them will nake a move on Flake Unfortunately Flake followed in his Father’s footsteps. Flake is a Rino but leans left much to much.
          I’ve been here for 10 years and no other one particular person stands out. The biggest problem being AZ is a retirement home for many and those folks hate change. So they vote who they know which is why McCain has held his seat for 20 something years and the voters might remember Flake’s Father, I don’t.

            It is NOT easy but getting to know as many old “do nothings” as possible with intelligent conversation and discussing tne future might get you heard…Hope so ! Never Give up!!!

    WHICH HAD YOU RATHER HAVE FOR A PRESIDENT A MAN, (AS 99% HAS), THAT TALKS A LITTLE DIRTY TO MEN, OR THE ABOVE IN THE GOOGLES.

    WHY HAS HILLIARY HAD A MUSLIM FROM A RADICAL FAMILY AS HER TOP AIDE FOR 10 YEARS, HUMA COULD BE A PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS TO THE MUSLIM WORLD.

    WHY HAS OBAMA SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH MUSLIMS ANOTHER PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS. EVEN HE HAS DECLARED HIMSELF A MUSLIM.

    WHY GET MAD AT PUTIN, HE SAID THAT THERE WAS NO PLACE IN RUSSIA FOR ANYONE THAT WOULD NOT FOLLOW THEIR LAW AND SPEAK THEIR LANGUAGE, THEY WOULD HAVE TO GO TO A COUNTRY THAT DID.

    WHY HAS HILLIARY, OBAMA, KERRY AND THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA DONE EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO HELP THE RADICAL MUSLIMS.

    WHY IS A LAW THAT WAS PASSED IN 1952 BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY, NOT ENFORCED? THIS LAW INCLUDES OBAMA SINCE HE SAID HE WAS A MUSLIM, AND ALL HE HAS AROUND HIM IN DC.

    WHY DID THIS ADMINSTRATION TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO?

    WHY TRADE 5 TERRIOST FROM CUBA FOR ONE TRAITOR?

    WHY TRY AND TAKE OUR GUNS? HITLER DID, & HISTORY TELLS US WHAT HAPPENED THERE.

    WHY ALLOW A MINIMUM OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS HERE IN THE STATES? MOST CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES. I PERSONALLY VERIFIED THE ONES IN SHAWNEE NATIONAL PARK, IN IL. AND THE ONE AT DOVEER, TN. AND THE FEMA CAMP IN EAST KY.

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VA. CLOSE TO DC? ARE THEY TO TAKE WASHINGTON?

    WHY BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, SOME MORE THAN ONE, WITH ARMED GUARDS? ARE THEY TO HOLD MUSLIMS?

    WHY ARE THEY BRINGING THOUSANDS OF YOUNG MUSLIMS HERE?

    WHY IS THE TAX PAYER HAVING TO FEED, CLOTH & HOUSE THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSAND OF MUSLIMS BEING BROUGHT HERE?

    WHY GIVE THE THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS BROUGHT IN FREE HEALTH CARE, SPENDING THOUSANDS FOR HOSPITAL CARE?

    WHY ARE THE ILLEGALS BEING TREATED BETTER THAN OUR VETERANS.

    WHY STOP THE TANK AND PLANE SHIPPMENT TO EGYPT, WHEN THEIR ARMY KICK THE RADICALS OUT?

    WHY DID OUR GOVERNMENT SEND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO HELP THE RADICALS IN IRAN, A COUNTRY OUT TO DESTROY US?

    WHY ARE WE SENDING BILLIONS TO ARAB COUNTRIES, AND LETING OUR COUNTRY GO TO POT?

    WHY DONT THEY ENFORCE THE LAW BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY?

    WHY IS THE MUSLIM MAJOR IN TEXAS LIVING THAT KILLED 14 SOLDIERS AND WOUNDED A LOT MORE?

    WHY ARE THEY RELEASING ALL MUSLIMS IN CUBA TO GO BACK INTO ACTION TO KILL OUR SOLDIERS?

    WHY DONT WE HANG ALL MUSLIMS CAUGHT AND BURY THEM WITH PIG PARTS, LIKE GENERAL PERSHING DID IN THE PHILLIPENS?

    WHY WAS OBAMA ALLOWED TO SWEAR IN CARLOYN WALKER AS JUDGE IN BROOKLIN USING THE QURAN?

    WHY ALLOW ILLEGALS TO FLOOD OUR COUNTRY WHEN THEY COST MORE PER YEAR THAN THE IRAQ WAR.

    I SAY, ARM ALL OUR TROUPS TO PREVENT A MUSLIM TAKEOVER. THINK IT IS IMPOSSIBLE. I CAN TAKE 100 AND TAKE ANY BASE IN 1 HOUR.

    WHY SEND BILLIONS TO MUSLIM COUNTRIES TRYING TO KILL US.

    BETTER COAT ALL YOU AMMO WITH PIGS BLOOD OR GREASE, LET THE WORLD YOU ARE DOING SO.

    JUST PRAY THAT DONALD TRUMP IS ELECTED AND IS ABLE TO TAKE OVER AS OUR PRESIDENT.

    GOOGLE THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLE 2015 AND YOU JUST MIGHT KNOW WHY.

    BELOW IS A GOOD REASON WHY I BELIEVE THAT A TAKEOVER TRY IS POSSIBLE. HOW CAN THE BIASED NEWS SAY OBAMA IS NOT A MUSLIM.

    THE LAST WHY, WHY DONT THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA REPORT ALL THIS???????????

    TRUMP IS THE ONLY ONE THAT HAS A CHANCE TO HELP. ITS EITHER HILLARY OR TRUMP. MY CHOICE WAS TRUMP.

    • The Redhawk

      YES FINALLY THE THIRD FUNCTIONING PARTY of We The People and the DEMISE of the BHOVOMIT attempt to COMMUNISM as well as the Two Party of EXTREME ELITIST Disfunctional STUPIDITY formerly the Republican and the Democrat party

    • David Tierney

      I love the name that we should adopt as our Party.
      THE AMERICAN PARTY and the colors should the same as our Flag. Not Red, definately not Blue but Red, White and Blue. Join the American Party to help make America great again. Just look at the bs Colin Kaepernick started by not standing for the National Anthem but kneeling instead because he feels opressed.
      And I just found out this morning, he did not even vote. What a tool.

    Best wishes to all of our newly elected Republican officeholders. The Republicans have a chance to turn their promises into action. They have the opportunity to show the citizenry that their is a better way to do things. If they let this opportunity pass they may find that it will be a long time before it comes around again.

  • Rodney Steward

    Now that we have things headed in the right direction, PLEASE don’t mess it up, do something this time and don’t waist it, it might be our last shot!!

  • Linda

    Congratulations to all Republican governors. We can finally get our country back.
