Kennewick especially has been a boomberg the last several years. Its been said more than a couple times that Kennewick/Tri-Cities had the healthiest economy in WA (Heck, I remember even reading something about best city for employment in the Nation). Its been rated "best place to raise a family" more than several times (BIL who lives there now says the schools aren't too bad). Its very affordable to live there and COL is low (comparatively speaking). And there are lots of educated people (Scientists, engineers, et. c) Because of Hanford.

Also add a high percentage of Hispanics. Pasco is about 60%, Kennewick is around 16-17%, but Richland is around only 5-6% or so. Yakima nearby is around 40-45% in that regard.

Southern Indiana, and Evansville, is not flat.

Evansville is not full of racists.

Im looking to move out of Sacramento / San Fran CA area. There is a pretty big list of likes and dislikes so I will just list them and see what jumps into peoples mind as a possible location to move. The one thing that is really important is I want the area / state to be a Conservative state for the most part.

This list is not in any particular order

Likes:
Noticeable Seasons (Snow in the winter is not required but would be nice)
Stable economy
Modern / well layed out area
A moderate sized city within 10-20 miles
Warm Summers
Low Humidity
Good house market for buyers
Water nearby
Clean air
Outdoor activities
Non Denominational Christian Community

Dislikes:
Flat
Constant rain
Big cities
Smog / Polution
Dirty / Run down areas
High Hispanic / Black population
*Hardcore Red Necks / Hicks
Extreme cultures
Payed Parking
Heavy Trafic

*Im not saying this to put anyone down, you could call me a Bible Thumper and I am ok with that. Im saying this just to get my point across rather than be exactly PC about it.

So what comes to mind ladies and gents?
Nebraska.
Southern Illinois.
Iowa.
Wisconsin.
