States Run By GOP Governors Dominate New Business Rankings

Unsurprisingly, the bottom five states are all run by Democrat governors...

The RGA reports:

As they transform their states into engines of economic growth and job creation, Republican governors continue to set an example through bold conservative leadership.

New rankings by Chief Executive Magazine show that eight of the top 10 states for business in America are all run by GOP governors. Governor Greg Abbott’s Texas led the way, followed by Governor Ron Desantis’ Florida and Tennessee under Governor Bill Lee, to round out the top three states. Indiana, Arizona, South Carolina, Ohio, and Georgia were also ranked top 10 states, all of which have GOP governors. 

Unsurprisingly, the bottom five states are all run by Democrat governors, with perennially anti-business New York and California in the bottom two spots.

These rankings further show that Republican governors are setting the standard for providing the pro-growth, pro-jobs leadership that drives America’s economic success.
