A Democratic governor holds veto power against dangerous GOP-sponsored legislation.

A Democratic governor can use executive action on issues like protecting public health, LGBTQ+ rights, and quality public education.

Check back for more information about these nominees after the primary on August 23.

Note: If this office has an incumbent, the incumbent is shown here. Swing Left will support the Democratic nominee following the primary, or pre-primary only if they are running unopposed, with the exception of statewide incumbents in competitive gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races, which have received early support.
