Can the governor and LT Governor be from different parties?

Legally speaking, there's nothing preventing it from happening in any state. In practice, usually only states where the governor and LT governor are directly elected in separate elections or states where the senate appoints the governor will have governors from different parties. There are exceptions to this, but it's rare. Right now, Arkansas, Missouri, Montana and Vermont all have Democratic governors and Republic LT governors, and Rhode Island has an Independent governor and a Democratic LT governor.
