Paul Ryan gave a shout-out to Republican governors in his NRI speech yesterday:

Washington may be getting all the attention these days.  But that’s only because it’s broken.  Today, the frontlines of reform are the states.  That’s where Republicans will see their greatest success—thanks to governors like Scott Walker, Bobby Jindal, Susana Martinez, Chris Christie, Bob McDonnell, Mike Pence, and others.

They deserve our thanks—because they’re models for all of us.  They work across the aisle whenever possible.  They balance their budgets.  And they expand opportunity through education reform.  I can’t wait to see what they will accomplish in the year ahead.
