(CNN) - Democrat John Kitzhaber has defeated Republican Chris Dudley in the Oregon Governor's Race, leaving four gubernatorial races yet to be decided – Connecticut, Illinois, Minnesota, and Vermont.
In Vermont, the Republican candidate has conceded defeat, but if the Democratic candidate does not get 50 percent, the next governor is chosen by the state legislature.
In 2011, there will be at least 29 Republican governors and at least 16 Democratic governors. (The Vermont Democrat would make at least 17.)
In Tuesday's election, 11 Democratic gubernatorial seats were won by a Republican candidate (Iowa, Kansas, Ohio, Maine, Michigan, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Wyoming). Two Republican gubernatorial seats were won by a Democratic candidate (California and Hawaii)
