Republican governors and GOP-controlled state legislatures presided over 16 percent more job creation than their Democratic counterparts from January 2010 to April 2012, according to a Daily Caller analysis of Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) employment data.
April was the most recent month for which online data was available on the BLS. All 50 states experienced job losses through most of 2009; many began recording job gains by the end of that year.
Raw BLS data indicated that since the beginning of 2010 Republicans at the state level oversaw the introduction of nearly 700,000 more jobs into the U.S. economy than Democrats.
