Chief Executive Magazine released its annual rankings of the best and worst states for business. States with Republican governors hold 9 of the top 10 spots and 20 of the top 25 spots in the rankings.
Democratic governors meanwhile hold down the bottom of the list with 4 Democrat-led states being ranked among the 5 worst states for business as well as 7 states with Democratic governors among the 10 worst states for business.
“In Chief Executive’s eighth annual survey of CEO opinion of Best and Worst States in which to do business, Texas easily clinched the No. 1 rank, the eighth successive time it has done so. California earns the dubious honor of being ranked dead last for the eighth consecutive year.”
