Twitter Accounts to Follow on State Politics and Government

These are non-candidate, non-party accounts with a couple of partisan pundits thrown in, arranged randomly with each refresh. Candidate accounts are being added to the district pages. The list changes frequently based on who is tweeting on state issues. Lots of other accounts are fantastic but have fewer state government tweets.

Built by Nooner readers. Curated by Scott Lay.

The list below is randomized. Who would you add/subtract, or would you make the list longer?
