     At some point, sure. It helps that Governorships tend to be less partisan than federal offices, so you can have some unorthodox outcomes. Vermont just elected a Republican Governor, but they aren't going to send one to the Senate anytime soon.

Rob Astorino, Carl Paladino, Ron Castorina, Assemblyman (R-Staten Island), John Quaglione (R-Bay Ridge), Chris Gibson, Craig Caruana, etc. could be a potential governor in the future.

Yeah, I'm sure Paladino's overt racism that was so bad even Trump had to issue a statement condemning him has made him a prime choice for statewide elections in New York...

Anyway, someday, surely. Probably not in the next 20 years or so, but you never know.

Someday yes, assuming now third party replaces the GOP in New York. 2018 could be a possibility because of a potential messy primary challenge on the Dem side, probably unlikely though. I would guess by 2030, New York would have elected a GOP Governor.

Yes, but it has much more to do with what the Democrats do than what the Republicans do.

If Zephyr Teachout had more money and more time to build her machine, we might be looking at Governor Astorino right now.

Good that she doesn't....

Gubernatorial elections seem to be the least partisan, so this isn't that unlikely.

Atlas before the election:
Trump is the least electable of the Republicans.  This won't even be close!

Atlas after the election:
Only Trump could have defeated Hillary!

I'm shocked no true leftist has commented yet that Cuomo is a GOP governor. Tongue

Yes, there will be, and anyone who says otherwise is kidding themselves.

And, Wyoming will have another Democratic Governor. Eventually.

Of course.

Florida hasn't had a Democratic governor in almost twenty years, I guess that means the Dems are done down there Roll Eyes

Maybe John Flanagan in 2018....however beating Cuomo in Trump's first midterm in 2018 may be tough...2022 or 2026 maybe.

Not 2018. 2022 - possible, but depends on too many factors, which can't be predicted now. 2026? I don't predict so far into future.
