Haley Barbour, who heads the Republican Governors Association (RGA), told The Hill. “Usually, governors’ races are better funded, and they take a lot of the responsibility in the ground game.”

That’s good news for the GOP considering that 27 states are having both gubernatorial and Senate elections this year. “There is a correlation between electing senators and electing governors,” Barbour said.
