2005 list could be a little skewed due to Hurricane Katrina relief efforts for Mississippi (Democrat governor 2000-2004, Louisiana (2004-2008 Democrat Governor), and Alabama(Republican).

Other States in the 2005 list:
New Mexico,(Dem 2003-2011)
Alaska,(Republican (2002-present)
West Virginia,(2001-present) plus Senator Byrd
North Dakota,(Republican 1992-present)
South Dakota,(Republican 1979-present)
Kentucky,(Republican 2003-2007, Dem before and after that time)
Virginia,(Dem 2002-2010)

Before throwing stones as a writer, please conduct due diligence when researching. Many states are large in size, but small in population will always have skewed stats.
NM population 2010 ranked 36th, SD 46th, and ND 48th.
State area size NM 5th, SD 17th, and ND 17th.

Senator Rober Byrd (Dem) was known as King Pork for years due to his efforts to get Federal dollars for his state.
