Here’s the salary of every governor in all 50 US states

Though the United States’ governors all share the same title, the nation’s 50 state leaders do not share the same salary.

Using the most recent data from The Council of State Governments (CSG), we examined the salaries of the current governor’s roster to see how much each makes. Most governors are paid at least $100,000, but leaders of five states receive a five-figure salary. The annual earnings range from $70,000 (in Maine) to $201,680 (in California).

While the pay pales in comparison to that of some high-powered CEOs and execs, a stint in the Governor’s Mansion can be a great stepping stone in a politician’s career. Of the 44 men who have been president of the United States, 17 had previously served as governor. The most recent to do so was George W. Bush, who was working out of the capitol building in Austin, Texas, when he was elected president.

Of the current slate of governors, 27 are Republicans and 23 are Democrats. Prior to the midterm elections last year, 33 were Republicans, 16 were Democrats, and one was an Independent. In total, the Democrats flipped seven gubernatorial races.

In the past, several governors have refused, reduced, or otherwise donated their earnings. Among them are current governors Andrew Cuomo and Gina Raimondo, who gave themselves five percent pay cuts.

Read on for each governor’s salary, listed in alphabetical order by state, along with their party affiliation.
