Halt of Execution in Oregon

In Oregon, the governor of the state, John Kitzhaber, stopped the execution of Gary Haugen and stated a declaration of moratorium on all executions that are in his state. He has also begun to push for his Oregon state citizens to find a new way that is better for punishment and also advocated for the abolition of capital punishment. Should other governors follow in the footsteps of Mr. Kitzhaber?
