There's an interesting story about MS-4.  Just before the election the Republican incumbent Jon Hinson admitted to participating in homoerotic activities in greater D.C., which served as a massive bump for black independent Lester McLermore.  Hinson was still able to pull off a narrow win by reassuring voters that he had persued religious guidance; his new wife even stood by him and campaigned for his reelection as well.

There's far more than that to the story of Jon Hinson.

They probably ought to make a biopic out of it one day.

And I'll get back to you on the others soon.

Both of Hinson's elections had the opposition split, although he had the majority in 1978

1978: Hinson 51.6%, John H. Stennis (son of the Senator) 26.4%, Evan Doss 19%, Other 3%
1980: Hinson 39%, Leslie McLemore (I) 29.8%, Britt Singletary (D) 29.4%, John Wayne McInerney 1.9%

Both Democratic primaries were a bit divided

1978 1st: Stennis 43.15%, James Disharoon 18.4%, Melvin Jennings 16.2%, Bob Mitchell 8.1%, Ken Johnson 7.4%, DA Tuttle 3.4%, E. Michael Marks 3.3%
1978 runoff: Stennis 59.1%, Disharoon 40.9%
1980 1st: Henry Kirksey 42.75%, Singletary 27.8%, WH Pyron 24.7%, WB Cagle 4.8%
1980 runoff: Singletary 56.7%, Kirksey 43.3%

Both times, the Dem / Dem+Ind vote was lower than the percentage of victory the Dem had in the runoff.

It'd be interesting to see how the county results went for these elections.

In 1976, MS4 went 54-44 for Ford, the most Republican district in the state. Then it went 54R-14D in 1978 with almost 32% going to mainly Evers.

So Hinson was running behind the averages before things got worse for him.

And as for NM-2, incumbent Harold Runnels (D) was so popular by 1980 that the Republicans didn't bother fielding a candidate.  However, Runnels died in August 1980, and the Attorney General (D) decided that the Dems could replace him on the ballot, but the GOP weren't allowed to field a new candidate.  The backlash was two-fold: the Democrats picked the governor's nephew over Runnels' widow, who got pissed and ran as a write-in, thus splitting the Democratic vote; and public anger at the AG's stupid partisan decision, combined with Reagan's coattails, allowed write-in candidate Joe Skeen (R) to win with 38%.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Probably has to be seen in the context of sclerotic PRI control of the state.

After looking at several maps, it looks as though Anderson only outperformed Perot in the current district of CA-8 and a maybe a few districts in NYC (Manhattan, mainly).  Not much to go on in order to make a map.  Sorry  Sad  I could probably do a Anderson vs. Perot '96 map if you wanted, Hermit.  Would that be okay?

From what I've gathered so far, Anderson performed much better in the cities with Perot doing well everywhere else, which isn't surprising at all. 

The map is still in progress.  BTW I'm actually just guessing the districts, since there's not exact correlating data.

I'm converting this thread into the official thread for past congressional elections, considering how much this thread shifted from presidential results b/CD.  The Presidential numbers/ maps will still be here for comparison btw.  


Sorry for the confusion.  Sad
