A record number 37 states are holding gubernatorial races this election year. With 17 of those races looking to upend the incumbent party, more seats could change hands than ever before in history. Jobs and the economy are on the top of the agenda everywhere, but that isn't the only reason the governor's races will affect politics well beyond their own borders. In 2011, the states will remap their voting districts and in most places, governors have redistricting veto power.
