Do not be surprised if some bishop decides to extend the denial of communion to Catholic governors who support capital punishment.

And I wouldn't be surprised, if that did happen, if Rome came down hard on any bishop who did that.

I would. The Pope opposes the death penalty, vehemently. In fact, he's said there is no justification for using it.
