Three incumbent governors will stand for reelection in 2007.

Kentucky's Ernie Fletcher has been indicted on a variety of criminal charges, and he has been repudiated by every senior Republican in his state; nevertheless, he managed to win his primary.

In Louisiana, Kathleen Blanco lost support after Hurricane Katrina, and decided not to run for reelection.

In neighboring Mississippi, Haley Barbour is still popular.
