- Republican governors from across the country are descending upon Tempe, Arizona for this year's Republican Governors Association meeting.
- They've kind of got a big year ahead, with 36 gubernatorial races to fight in.
- Given their party's ... less than sterling reputation lately, the governors, who manage to mostly toe a more moderate line, think they are the right people to lead the way.
- And, they're kind of having a moment. And totally eating it up.
- New Jersey governor Chris Christie is set to take over as RGA chair, which will make him very cozy with the party's most benevolent donors.
- Those in charge of the 2016 primary preseason events seem to think this is more evidence that Christie plans to run.
- Meanwhile, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker seems to be the hot 2016 will he/won't he du jour, thanks to the buzz he's getting for his new book (another frequent opening act for presidential bids).
- He's already started raking in the crucial and game-changing 2016 listicles.
- Walker isn't pooh-poohing the press. Instead, he said that the next Republican presidential candidate should be a governor, a category which conveniently includes himself.
- Iowa Governor Terry Branstad agrees.
- Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal thinks that all this 2016 chatter is stupid. But, while you're on the subject, he would like to point out how awesome he and all his governor friends are doing at their job.
- There's still time for all these governors to make their case—especially since outside groups don't seem to have chosen their horses for 2014, or 2016, quite yet.
