Texas Gov. Rick Perry, chairman of the Republican Governors Association, is pleased with what his group has wrought. It helped the GOP gain control of 29 governorships, and the governors’ accomplishments have been impressive, he writes on Politico

“Now the nation can see the tremendous impact made possible by a group of governors committed to sweeping reforms in every facet of government,” Perry says. “Over this short time, new GOP governors have redefined the nation’s politics by hitting the reset button in their states — promoting fiscally responsible policies to lead the way back to national prominence.”
Among others, he cites Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder “for showing the nation that by focusing like a laser on pocketbook issues, the Rust Belt can begin its transformation back into a powerful economic engine.”
