BOSTON (AP) -- Ambitious Republican governors across the nation -- from New Jersey and Louisiana to Wisconsin and Michigan -- are pitching themselves as can-do politicians and highlighting bipartisan records of achievement.

This, with no end in sight to the federal government shutdown.

Their goal: Draw a contrast with their prospective presidential challengers serving in Congress who have sided with a vocal band of Republicans whose demands that Congress defund the health care law helped trigger the shutdown.

The fissures within the ranks of the possible GOP presidential candidates illustrate a broader party split.
