  Colorado - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The current governor of Colorado is Bill Owens (R).
Colorado is made up primarily of transplanted citizens, and this is illustrated by the fact that the state has not had a native-born governor since 1975 (when John David Vanderhoof left office) and has not elected one since 1958, in the person of Stephen L.R. McNichols.
Bob Beauprez, considered a highly conservative politician, is running for the governor's seat in 2006 on the Republican ticket.

 Benjamin Franklin
In that year the prospect of war with the French led several of the royal governors to call for a congress of all the colonies, to be held at Albany.
He was to have a veto on all the acts of the grand council, and was to nominate all military officers, subject to its approval.
The governor contended that these should be exempt from taxation; the assembly insisted rightly that these estates should bear their one share of the public burdens.

 Top20New Hampshire.com - Your Top20 Guide to New Hampshire!
The governor of New Hampshire is John Lynch (Democrat).
Unlike most states, New Hampshire does not have a Lieutenant Governor; the Senate President serves as "acting governor" whenever the governor is out of the state, or otherwise unable to perform the duties of the office.
Instead, New Hampshire has a bifurcated executive branch, consisting of the Governor and a five-member Executive Council that is a holdover from the Governor's Council of the Colonial era.

 Tennessee   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
After the American Civil War, Tennessee adopted a new constitution that abolished slavery (February 22, 1865), ratified the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution on July 18, 1866, and was the first state readmitted to the Union (July 24 of the same year).
Tennessee was the only state that seceded from the Union that did not have a military governor after the American Civil War, mostly due to the influence of President Andrew Johnson, a native of the state, who was Lincoln's vice president and succeeded him as president, due to the assassination.
Tennessee's governor holds office for a four year term and may serve any number of terms, but not more than two in a row.
