Colors don't matter:


Combined tenure of the US Senators from the state? (Go Harry Byrd)

Right, what's with the Byrd comment?

West Virginia's 72 year tenure in the Senate is rather impressive.

Though, as usual, I mess up Byrd's first name.

Control of the lower and upper houses of each state's Legislature?  Nebraska's is unicameral.

I don't get it- Badnarik got 0.4% in OR, and Cobb got 0.29%- why is it coloured orange then?

Oh I forgot - orange isn't just Cobb, it was for write-ins too.

I've been thinking and thinking about it, but Utah keeps throwing me. I figured even if you used some sort of average over the past x-years or something, it's still unlikely because it's been Republican since 1985... Perhaps another hint would be handy...

Okay another hint. Early 1980's. Does that help?

The Clue that I have given you might not have helped much, however I think this one such help much better. Bill Clinton and Mario Coumo.

Nope. But I'll give another hint: states of birth.

We have a WINNER. Congrats Smid Smiley.

Though to be precise, it's the Gubernatorial composition after the 1982 Gubernatorial Elections.
