GOP governors endure early trials, gird for 2014

FILE - In this Jan. 15, 2013 file photo Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad delivers the Condition of the State address before the Iowa Legislature at the Iowa Statehouse in Des Moines. As they gear up for re-election campaigns, many GOP governors, particularly those across the upper Midwest, find themselves in positions of strength, having benefited from improving economies if not changes of heart over their policies. Branstad enacted strict budget measures. But he failed to make headway on education and business tax reform. And he wasn’t able to trim unionized state employee health benefits.
