Due to term limits, those who have chosen not to run and one who may appoint himself to a Senate seat, there will be change.

"The turnover could be significant on a political level as well. Democrats have a 26-24 majority of governorships. But 37 states are holding gubernatorial elections this fall. The nonpartisan Cook Political Report rates 12 of those races as potential Republican victories including four currently held by Democrats. Of seven states listed as potential Democratic wins, only one would represent a pickup from Republicans. The newsletter lists 18 races as toss ups."

The Governor 18 race toss up, along with the Senate and House races could make for a very exciting election night, this year.

How much interest do you have in the governor races outside of your own state? Which ones are you watching? In your opinion, this year, what's the significance, if any, of the governor races on the national scene either as it relates to individual national issues that concern you or as some kind of overall indicator of the national mood?
