Outside special interests of the state give money, pressure from the national media and other factions bear influence on them over their state's concerns.

That's a plus for the states.
"One White House official with knowledge of the conversations told me that the Russian ambassador raised the sanctions to Flynn and that Flynn responded that the Trump team would be taking office in a few weeks and would review Russia policy and sanctions.
