Are they in tight re-election races?
Could you give us some linky goodness on them, whoever they are?
One GOP governor in a blue state is Maryland's Larry Hogan who "don't care about Donald Trump ... don't listen to Donald Trump." When he was asked about voting for Trump, he replied, "No, I don't plan to," but not liking Donald Trump doesn't make him a Rino. Then there is Bill Haslam of Tennessee, who in the past, has asked Trump for a more blatant disavowal of white supremacist groups, a stronger stand against abortion and a change in some of his rhetoric. "When you're in elected office, words matter, particularly when you're running for the most powerful office in the world," said Haslam, a former Rubio supporter. "It's not been a secret there have been things I haven't agreed with."These are but two examples of the wheels beginning to come off the Trump Train.

Libertarian rags don't interest me, as they're for the demos anyway and it sounds as if both were never on the train.So we have a Rubio guy and one in MD, one of the Leftiest states there is, especially now. Yeah, those guys are sure sign of rough times ahead.I take it we're getting all this trollery (I've been rebutting one elsewhere) because it's pretty obvious The Demos will take it on the chin when the new polls come out.
A Republican elected in a state like MA (Charlie Baker), IL (Bruce Rauner), or MD (Larry Hogan) is a leftist a la Romney (another MA governor) or Bloomberg in NYC. Leftist Republicans (RINOs) are elected in those polities because even leftist voters get sick of actually having to live with far leftist policies on their own home ground like those that would be implemented by blue state Dems.Trump is campaigning like an actual conservative. Of course blue state RINOs will oppose him. They are leftists and in order to get elected and re-elected in blue states, RINOs have to talk like leftists.Trump is drawing a bright line through American politics. Those on the other side are members of the Uniparty, the consortium of Democrats and GOPe who are in favor of open borders and Middle East military adventure. A Trump victory will destabilize their arrangement by proving that there is a potential majority in presidential elections for a conservative like Trump.Steve in Greensboro
Hogan of MD is probably not going to stand for re-election due to health issues. In the Free State Trump won't hurt the down ticket Republicans since they have almost zero chance of winning in that deep blue state.
