As the Chief Executive Officer for a state, a governor wields a great deal of power. From selecting cabinet members to advocating particular stances for education, business, social programs and the environment, the governor can make a big impact on how state resources are used.

In some races, such as that in Arkansas, prominent politicians are publicly supporting certain candidates. For example, Bill Clinton has appeared at a fundraiser to help candidate Mike Ross. Because of his lineage in the Carter family, candidate Jason Carter has the tacit endorsement of former president Jimmy Carter.
Also at stake this November are the offices of 31 attorneys general. The outcome of those elections will determine the degree of enforcement of a number of laws that could be relevant for businesses. Everything from discrimination to environmental law to pricing and monopolization rulings will be impacted.
