WASHINGTON (AP) - The nation's governors sound every bit as divided as Washington lawmakers on how best to help the nation's economy.
Democratic governors such as Maryland's Martin O'Malley and Connecticut's Dannel Malloy are making pitches to raise the minimum wage as the nation's governors meet in Washington for their annual conference.
Meanwhile, Republican governors such as Louisiana's Bobby Jindal and Indiana's Mike Pence are calling for more freedom from federal regulations and the opening of the Keystone XL pipeline.
Appearing Sunday on CNN, Malloy says the vast majority of people earning a minimum wage are trying to raise a family, and the minimum wage needs to keep up with inflation.
Jindahl told CBS' "Face the Nation" that delaying mandates included in President Barack Obama's health insurance overhaul would boost the economy.
