The lieutenant governor is the second-highest-ranking government official in 45 of the 50 U.S. States and four territories. In those states and territories, it is the first in the line of succession in case of a vacancy in the office of governor, while in the remaining states and territories another office holds that status. Currently, 25 states elect a lieutenant governor on a ticket with the governor, while 18 states elect a lieutenant governor separately. In West Virginia, the President of the Senate, as elected by the State Senators, serves as the state's lieutenant governor. In Tennessee, the State Senators elect a Speaker of the Senate, who in turn serves as lieutenant governor. Five states do not have a lieutenant governor. In the 50 states, District of Columbia, and 5 territories, there are currently 29 Republicans, 26 Democrats and one member of a third party ( Vermont Progressive Party).
