If your career goals include a stint as governor of a state, be aware your salary prospects are strongest if you can finagle an election victory in California, Pennsylvania or Tennessee. If you're in Maine, Colorado or Arizona ... not so much.

Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer's salary is in the bottom ten percent.
