Strict COVID-19 policies in Democratic-led states worked, new research found. Republican-led states saw more illness.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York issued a mask mandate, social-distancing rules, and gathering limits in 2020. Spencer Platt/Getty Images Democratic-led states had stricter COVID-19 responses and better health outcomes, a new study found. States with stricter COVID-19 rules saw 8% fewer cases, on average, than models would've predicted. The study's researchers said the results showed politics shouldn't influence public-health policy. After nearly two years of politically charged b...

Will Donald Trump be spoiler as California GOP seeks Gov. Newsom recall?

By MICHAEL R. BLOOD | The Associated Press LOS ANGELES  — California could witness a stunning turnabout in a nation of deeply polarized politics if the liberal state dumps Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom and elects a Republican to fill his job in a September recall election. With the country’s political center largely vanished, it’s rare to see governors win elections on adversarial ground, making the notion of a Republican upset in one of the nation’s Democratic strongholds seem implausible. Repub...

FINAL STATE OF PLAY: Democrats Eye Huge Gains In Governors’ Mansions

After eight years of GOP dominance in governors’ mansions, Democrats are on the verge of winning back many seats and regaining substantial power across the nation. The only question is how big a night it turns out to be for the party. Democrats are all but certain to flip governorships across the map, including in a number of swing states, and have a chance of picking up more than a dozen governor’s mansions if every close race breaks their way on Tuesday. That would be a major shift that coul...
