This morning, I read a story in The New York Times about tea party-backed Republican governors who are dismantling important environmental protections in their states, going well beyond what previous Republican governors have done and in some cases even going against the wishes of Republican legislatures.
This is a great example of why governors matter, and why we can’t afford to elect more Republican governors who put ideology ahead of common-sense solutions.
In contrast, Democratic governors across the country are managing to protect our environment and create jobs at the same time.

Jobs. Opportunity. Now.,
Chair, Democratic Governors Association
P.S. – Yesterday, I appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to talk about how Democratic governors are working to balance and move forward to create jobs and expand opportunity, without demonizing working families. You can watch it here.
