VA, NC, and FL were all blue in the last presidential election, and all are perhaps in play this time. I'm not sure you can call them consistently red.

I don't know...In the last 10 presidential elections, VA voted Republican 9 times, NC voted Republican 8 times and FL voted Republican 7 times.

Texas is ranked fourth in revenue growth, surpassed only by Oregon, ND, and WV. Not sure about Oregon, but I know the revenue growth in Texas, ND and WV is largely due to oil and gas.

Also, not sure if this is the case for 2011, but in 2010 if Texas had been a nation, it would have ranked fifteenth in the world for GDP - ahead of all other states.

In the last 10 presidential elections, CA voted Democrat as many times as Republican.

Oregon's comes from the Californians fleeing across the border. Also, 2 is greater than 1, if I'm not mistaken. I'm never sure what they do teach in Texas schools these days, however. I kid, but yes we're still biggest.
