"Governors Could Drive The Next Wave Of Climate Change Action"

"With Congress divided, newly elected Democrat governors are poised to charge ahead with clean energy."

"Environmentalists lamenting that a green wave didn’t wash over Congress can find a glimmer of hope in the results of several key governor races.

As of Wednesday, it looks like Democrats committed to fighting climate change gained several key governorships that could accelerate local and national progress in clean energy.

Democrat Stephen Sisolak won in Nevada, Democrat Janet Mills won in Maine, and Democrat Michelle Lujan Grisham won in New Mexico. In the past two years, these states all passed renewable energy bills through their legislatures that were vetoed by Republican governors."
