Yes but only after winning the presidential-vice presidential election, the Governor would have to resign his position prior to taking office as VP.
The Democratic and Republican National convententions are where the delegates of each party meet to nominate their Presidential and Vice-Presidential nominees. The nominees get delegates by winning each state's primary or caucus.
Most states appoint their electors on a winner-take-all basis, based on the statewide popular vote on Election Day. Maine and Nebraska are the only two current exceptions. Maine and Nebraska distribute their electoral votes proportionally, with two at-large electors representing the statewide winning presidential and vice-presidential candidates and one elector each representing the winners from each of their Congressional districts.
Cleveland lost his re-election bid in 1888 but won again in 1992. Nixon ran for president and lost in 1960 but won in 1968 and again in 1972. Jackson lost in a 4-man race in 1824, then won in 1828 and again in 1832. Jefferson came in second in 1796 but won in 1800 and 1804. I think these are all the losing presidential candidates who came back to win. Lincoln, Hayes and maybe others lost an election before winning the big one. Also, William Henry Harrison lost to Martin Van Buren in 1836 but beat him in 1840.

financial support. Campaigns can be expensive, and groups such as political action committees (PACs), special interest groups, and party committees often provide contributions to candidates to help fund their campaigns. This financial support enables candidates to run effective campaigns, advertise, and reach a wider audience, thus increasing their chances of winning elections.

Third party candidates have a difficult time winning electoral votes
The spoiler is a political candidate (sometimes of a third party) who has little to no chance of winning an election but can still decide the fate of an election by taking votes away from other candidates.
Officially, people who finish in second or third in the primaries don't win anything. However, these individuals are often picked to run with the winning candidate as vice-president.
They will inaugurate the winning candidates on the first of January.
In all presidential campaigns there are hundreds of people who help the winning candidate succeed. Andrew Jackson was probably the most famous Polk supporter in 1844. Franklin Pierce helped him carry NH and was offered a position in Polk's cabinet.
When the only candidates who have a reasonable chance of winning an election are one of two parties, this is generally referred to as a two party system. The US is an example of a two party system in which the only candidates who stand a reasonable chance of winning are Republican or Democratic.
In the US presidential election of 1836, Democrat Martin Van Buren defeated Whig William Henry Harrison. (The same two candidates ran against each again in 1840, with Harrison winning.)
This is referred to as the "coattail effect." It happens when a popular or influential candidate's success in an election helps boost the chances of other candidates from the same party, as voters are more likely to vote for candidates from the same party as the top candidate. This phenomenon is often seen in presidential elections, where the winning presidential candidate's popularity can positively impact down-ballot races.
