    New York is winning so far!

    GWBush - Texas (father was Representative, not governor)

    Clinton - Arkansas

    Reagan - California

    Carter - Georgia

    FDRoosevelt - New York

    Coolidge - Massachusetts

    Wilson - New Jersey

    TRoosevelt - New York

    McKinley - Ohio

    Cleveland - New York

    Hayes - Ohio

    Polk - Tennessee

    Tyler - Virginia

    Harrison - Indian Territories

    Mark J is wrong -- both Johnson & the elder Bush were Representatives from Texas, not governors.

    I'm thinking it is Texas. President Johnson, and both of the President Bushes. Just my guess, but let me know what you find out.
