    Of course there are 50 governors :

    33 are Republican, 16 are Democratic, and 1 is Independent.

    6 are women

    47 are white
    2 are Hispanic
    1 is Asian
    (Is Japanese Pacific Islander or Asian?
    A definition from Henry Ford Health System states that an Asian-Pacific American is "A U.S. citizen whose origins are from Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, the Philippines, Samoa, Fiji, Guam, the U.S. Trust Territories of the Pacific or the Northern Marianas.)


    O is black even though 13 % of the pop is black. Hispanics are about 17%,


    In 2018 :
    [​IMG]Thirty-six states will hold gubernatorial elections in 2018: Alabama; Alaska; Arizona; Arkansas; California; Colorado; Connecticut; Florida; Georgia; Hawaii; Idaho; Illinois; Iowa; Kansas; Maine; Maryland; Massachusetts; Michigan; Minnesota; Nebraska; Nevada; New Hampshire; New Mexico; New York; Ohio; Oklahoma; Oregon; Pennsylvania; Rhode Island; South Carolina; South Dakota; Tennessee; Texas; Vermont; Wisconsin; and Wyoming. Republicans currently hold 26 of these states, while Democrats hold nine (one, Alaska, is held by an Independent.
    ------------------------------------------------------

    Blacks, women and democrats are underrepresented .

    Went to a lot of trouble to point out that.
    1. Blacks are a minority.
    2. There is more people voting for other races then just whites.
    3. There may not be that many blacks either running for governor or voting for governor.
    4. That the best candidate (as far as those in the state are concerned) may not have been a black.

    Thanks for pointing out that you are racist enough to think that people should vote for blacks just because of skin color and not the ideas that they stand for.

    The governors are elected by the voters of the state, not appointed.

    If you want more democrats and blacks to assume that position, get them elected.

    Did you know that although Louisiana is a red state (in national elections), their governor is a Democrat, and the three largest shithole cities in the state are all run by African American female Democrats?

    Don't worry, Fl has rigged the elections for a long time, esp with the 2000 election for Potus.
