(escobar) These guys was once ROBUST now they knew the party is over.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, the head of the Republican Governors Association who might seek the GOP presidential nomination for himself in 2016, gave voice to the divide on Tuesday: “As Republican governors, we want to reclaim our brand from Washington, D.C.,” he said on CNN.
“For too many years, we've outsourced what it means to be a Republican
-- we defined that in Washington, D.C.”
In short, Republican governors are succeeding where their counterparts on Capitol Hill are failing. And that’s why it’s pretty difficult right now to find GOP governors willing to praise their party’s antics in Congress
My approach would be, as the executive, is to call in the leaders of the Congress, the legislature, whatever you're dealing with, and say, 'We're not leaving this room until we fix this problem, because I'm the boss, I'm in charge,’” Christie said at the outset of the shutdown.

Republican Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval warned of "catastrophic" effects for his state unless the shutdown is ended, noting that he was directing his frustration "toward the Congress, all of them, as well as the president, there are starting to be some real consequences here in my state."

And Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker took to the pages of The Washington Post on Wednesday to favorably compare his own actions as governor against the ongoing dysfunction in D.C.

"Our reforms are working, and we continue to work with the legislative branch to do more to improve the lives of the people we represent," Walker wrote. "That’s what we’re doing in the Badger State. And that’s why Wisconsin continues to be open for business."

The shutdown has the added effect of creating a dividing line between Republican governors and Republican members of Congress heading into the 2016 presidential election, as well.
