Coronavirus response could be key factor in tight governor’s races

Responding to the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic poses serious challenges for governors across the country, including the nine set to face voters in November’s 11 gubernatorial elections.

How state leaders handle their COVID-19 responses could have a particular impact in competitive races, such as those in North Carolina or Montana, where Gov. Steve Bullock (D) is running for the Senate and both parties are fighting hard to replace him.

Sara Rinfret, the chairwoman of the Department of Public Administration and Public Policy at the University of Montana School of Law, said this week that voters are “watching to see how they have responded to this situation and how they are putting people first.”

“It’s one of the things you’re seeing nationally — all the governors responding to this and putting the people first,” Rinfret said.
