The Myth of Red Virginny

The myth of the solidly Red Commonwealth is well established - and also kinda not true, at least in a gubernatorial sense.  Consider.

1946 to 1970 - six Democratic governors
1970 to 1982 - three Republican governors
1982 to 1994 - three Democratic governors
1994 to 2002 - two Republican governors
2002 to 2010 - two Democratic governors
2010 to present - one Republican governor

Yeah.  That isn't a solidly Red state - it is a solidly complicated state.
