IT’S A SAFE bet that most conservative Republicans would rush to support a political leader with the following record, especially in a traditionally Democratic state:
•?Reversed a $2.2 billion deficit and brought it into balance without raising taxes, largely by reduced spending and eliminating wasteful and unaffordable programs, allowing for a projected fiscal 2014 budget surplus of $300 million.
•?Bipartisan pension and benefits reforms, saving the state $120 billion over 30 years.•?Streamlining government
