Many of the nation's republican governors were in Orlando Wednesday for the Republican Governor's Association conference.
From education reform to union stripping, their work has generated a lot of controversy recently, but many say they're confident voters understand change isn't easy to come by.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal says they're just tackling the policies they were elected to do. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie says the best way they can help the republican party move forward is to show real leadership.
The conference continues Thursday where Florida Governor Rick Scott will headline a talk on the leadership he's brought to Tallahassee.
