Only in America does a house look better than a mansion.
The Washington Post's Philip Bump put together a handy graphic, showing just how many U.S. governors have thrown their hats into a presidential race from 2006 to 2015 (likely 2016 candidates, such as Bobby Jindal, Jeb Bush, and Chris Christie, are included in the "running" category right alongside already-declared candidates such as Rick Perry and Martin O'Malley).
The results? Over the last decade, one out of every eight governors — or 12.5 percent — has run, is running, or likely will run for president in 2016.
