Eight of Top 10 States For Job Growth Share Windmill Farms and GOP Governors, But Mostly GOP Governors

Writing at ConservativeIntel, David Freddoso points us to the following data:

...the RNC needs to do more to showcase its governors and their successes. Here’s one of the things they should be talking about...

According to today’s release by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 31 of the 50 states have experienced significant job growth over the last 12 months.

It might not come as a huge surprise, but states with GOP governors (8 of the top 10) and right-to-work states (7 of the top 10, in bold) dominate the top of the list in terms of job growth over the last 12 months...

...some of the Republican governors of states not on this list are still okay. Gov. John Kasich’s Ohio doesn’t appear above, but in May it had a stronger month than any other state, gaining 32,000, jobs, or about as many as Maryland gained in the last year. Wisconsin’s Scott Walker is looking increasingly safe for re-election thanks to fiscal reforms and strong job creation last month (10,400) helps his cause...

Would that we had these kinds of conservatives in the Senate.
