Current Gubernatorial Scoreboard
Bottom Line

Governor Bill Walker was elected as an independent in 2014, narrowly defeating the incumbent GOP Republican  Sean Parnell by a 48% to 46% margin. Hard to know how this race will shape up, but many GOP candidates appear up for the challenge. It’s important to remember that Democrats didn’t contest the race four years ago. If they do in 2018, Walker could be in a lot of trouble.
