Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is gearing up for re-election next year, his third race in four years.

Republican governors are often seen as innovative policymakers and potential presidential candidates, but a few are struggling with political or ethical problems that might crimp their ambitions.
The Christie administration has submitted its final plan to federal officials for spending the first $1.83 billion in Superstorm Sandy recovery aid, which would help residents rebuild their homes and businesses, assist renters in finding new apartments and offer $10,000 incentives for people to remain in their storm-damaged communities.

Conservatives and watchdog groups are mounting a “not-so-fast” campaign against a $50.7 billion Superstorm Sandy aid package that Northeastern governors and lawmakers hope to push through the House this coming week.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is obviously in the wrong business. He is becoming more of a television celebrity by the minute and getting much better reviews as a television performer than as governor.
