Which US State Governors Use WordPress?

Us Governors

In normal times, being a governor of a US state is a fairly low-profile job.

Yes, there are some famous governors. For example, you probably remember Governor Schwarzenegger.

However, there are 50 different governors, plus five more if you include territories such as Guam and Puerto Rico. Most governors struggle to become famous in their own state, let alone nationally or internationally.

These are not normal times. Governors are now constantly in the news and being required to really lead their states. As the CEO of a company with staff across the USA, I've been visiting a lot of governors' websites, looking for information. I realized that many are using WordPress!

All-in-all, 12 governors are using WordPress. During the pandemic, these governors need to provide daily or even hourly updates to their citizens, using text, video, files and more. It's hard to imagine a better choice than WordPress for busy government sites in 2020.
