Yeah, I'll do everything I can to stop Phil Murphy (aka Jon Corzine 2.0) from being Governor. Rush Holt really needs to run, he'd win in a walk.

It's been mentioned in another thread that Tim Scott is considering a 2018 SC gubernatorial run with Trey Gowdy as his running mate.

Why would a sitting Congressman take a step down to Lt. Governor?

In New Mexico apparently Tom Udall is seriously considering running for governor.

I will only update my posts when they will announce.

Gowdy apparently hates Congress, and wants to live full time in Spartenburg (I think?) South Carolina with his family. And Scott is good friends with Gowdy and was considering a move to Governor in the first place.

I guess stranger things have happened. DeWine was a Senator and now he's but an Attorney General. Speaking of which...

Both A.G. Mike DeWine and Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor have announced for the Ohio governorship.

New Jersey is Safe D, Virginia is the only one to watch. 2018 will certainly be a fascinating year for governorships due to all the open seats.

Shame that there aren't any better candidates in Virginia other than "fiscally conservative" Northam. Are there any other solidly progressive people who could run?

"Fiscally conservative" is not always bad. On the contrary - it's frequently rather good. And while Virginia gradually moves left - even Vermont preferred at least "somewhat fiscally conservative" candidate this year...

TN has the problem of too strong of a Republican bench, which could make for a really fascinating primary (given the state of the Tennessee Democratic Party, the de facto general election).

Any chance Dems wrangle the ol' Indian Outlaw himself (Tim McGraw) like they were talking about ten years ago? I doubt Cooper would run

Yes, TN is a safe state, but it is also a safe state with a terribly inept minority party, so I would not count on the Democrats making a major coup like that.

Who is more inept? TN Dems or AL Dems?

If Brendan Johnson won't run for AG(if that's up in 2018), he could run.
