“A West Virginia gov­er­nor’s switch from Demo­crat to Repub­li­can means the GOP will have full con­trol of leg­isla­tive and ex­ec­u­tive branch in 26 states. Democrats have full con­trol in just six states,” ad­vises John Karch, spokesman for Amer­i­can for Tax Re­form, a non­par­ti­san coali­tion of the fru­gal and fis­cally minded.

In­deed, West Virginia Gov. Jim Jus­tice made his in­ten­tions clear on Thurs­day. Num­bers are telling here.

Mr. Kartch points out the to­tal pop­u­la­tion of Repub­li­can­con­trolled states is now 164,138,104 peo­ple. The pop­u­la­tion of Demo­crat-con­trolled states: 50,190,213.
