Incumbents hold the line for their parties in 2014 state executive elections

StateExecLogo.png

By Nick Katers

Voters overwhelmingly returned incumbents to office in state executive races up and down the ballot in 2014. Of the 225 seats covered by Ballotpedia, 150 incumbents appeared on the general election ballot on November 4. Five challengers were able to oust incumbents and flip seats to the opposing party, leading to a 3.3 percent partisan switch rate among seats contested by incumbents. In other words, 96.7 percent of state executive incumbents who sought re-election on November 4 were returned to office.

There were a total of 22 seats or 9.8 percent of the 225 offices covered in 2014 that switched parties. This figure included 17 seats flipped to a new party where incumbents did not appear on the general election ballot. In these races, incumbents were either not seeking re-election, were unable to run due to term limits, or were defeated in primaries. Four races were not called at the time of publication, with challengers leading incumbents in the race for Alaska governor and lieutenant governor. The following chart details the five state executive seats where challengers defeated incumbents in 2014.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett Republican Party Tom Wolf Democratic Party 9.8%
Pennsylvania Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley Republican Party Mike Stack Democratic Party 9.8%
