Note that the five states where Josh reports the governor's race is still in doubt -- MN, RI, NV, AK, ID -- are all held by Republicans right now.
That means that Dems, who already have 28 governorships, could have more than 30 before the dawn. I don't think we've mentioned Oregon Governor Kulongoski's reelection, incidentally.
Governors don't vote, so numerical majorities among them are fairly meaningless, but that's a big gain after starting the night with 22.
