Good evening, and welcome to our 1924 election night coverage. Headline of the hour, President Parker, expected to have a bad night, at least for now leads in the electoral vote count. Six states have had their polls close, we have some returns, lets look them over.

Good news for demcorats, we can declare at this early point in the evening, that when all the votes are in and counted, President Parker will go on to carry the state of Kentucky. Kentucky for Parker.

Election night 1924. Welcome back, polls have just closed again at the top of the 10 o'clock hour. And we have a major projection. Herbert Hoover, the republican who has been involved in politics and past administrations here and there, wins the big one tonight. Herbert Hoover will be the next President of the United States. Alton Parker, hats off to him, he won four years ago when he wasn't expected to. Parker and Marshall did something great for the democrats over the last decade or so, but it ends tonight. Parker goes down to defeat as Hoover wins the presidency tonight.

We have some projections to justify that national rpojection. First in Iowa, Hoover wins his home state of Iowa.


Herbert Hoover Wins Iowa

In Utah, Herbet Hoover wins Utah.

Robert LaFollette is starting to show some strength. First in Montana, its too close to call, but not between the republican and democratic candidate. Its undecided in Montana between Hoover and Mr. LaFollette.

In Minnesota, we can declare that state for Hoover. Herbert Hoover wins in Minnesota.

In North Dakota, we can say that this state is undecided also. Undecided between Hoover and LaFollette. However, Robert LaFollette leads in that state. LaFollette leads in North Dakota, but the state is undecided.

We can go ahead and also say that South Dakota will go to Hoover. Hoover wins in South Dakota tonight.

1928 saw an growing economy, growing since late 1925. With strong poll numbers, President Hoover announced his candidacy for reelection. Vice President Lowden also let it be known that he would seek reelection to the vice presidency.

For the democrats, always an interesting race for the opposition. Here, to some surprise, representative Cordell Hull of Tennessee won the democratic nomination for President. In what came to some as even more of a surprise, Hull picked another southerner, Walt George of Georgia as his running mate.

Despite high hopes on the democratic side, Hull has trouble even holding the President under fifteen points in public opinion polls. The final poll taken before election day shows President Hoover ahead by sixteen. Most democrats are focused on more the race for control of congress. Seeing the sometimes unpredictable and surprising result of past elections for the presidency, some democrats are thinking maybe...just maybe.

Good evening and welcome. Headline of the hour, President Hoover opens up a early lead in the race for the presidency. The Hull camp acknowledges that the President is ahead nationally. Six states saw their polls close at the 7 o'clock hour on the east coast. We have some projections. Lets look them over.

First in Florida, this might be a sign that democrats are in trouble with the presidency tonight. Florida is undecided. Democrats usually perform well here, they might tonight. But, its undecided at this hour.

We can declare that in Georgia, congressman Hull will carry the state of Georgia. This is the home state of his running mate, and it still comes as no surprise. Georgia part of the democratic solid south. If Florida is in question, Georgia is not. Hull wins the first electoral votes of the night as he carries Georgia. Georgia for Hull.


Cordell Hull Wins Georgia

And South Carolina, yes South Carolina goes for the democrats tonight too. South Carolina for congressman Hull.

Cordell Hull Wins South Carolina

But, here it comes. Indiana, a state that four years ago went for Hoover and began to mark the end of the Marshall/Parker era. Tonight, theres no question. President Hoover easily carries the state of Indiana tonight.

Herbert Hoover Wins Indiana

In Kentucky, it is always thought by democrats. If we don't carry Indiana, at least we have Kentucky. Well it doesn't work with either state tonight. Kentucky also goes for the President tonight.

Herbert Hoover Wins Kentucky

And in Vermont, Vermont always a reliably republican state, especially tonight. President Hoover carries the state of Vermont very easily tonight.

Herbert Hoover Wins Vermont

Virgnia, this is something to tell you about. Democrats have to be in trouble tonight because Virgnia is undecided at this hour like Florida. President Hoover hoped to be competetive in the south tonight and at least at this hour, he is. Undecided in Virgnia.

Now lets look at our electoral map for the first time tonight and the electoral vote total.


Hull: 23        Hoover: 32        266 needed to win

Lets turn to our panel a moment.

I think that Hoover will easily pass that 266 electoral vote mark tonight. He has a strong record for his first four years in office, while his opponent is a respected man, I think this is just not the right time for Cordell Hull.

Does anyone here disagree with that?

No not really. What will be interesting is despite the democrats having two southerners on the ticket, can the President actually carry any southern states tonight. That and the race for the congress. Does the President have any coat tails, or what would be really interesting, do the democrats retake congress? A big republican win for the presidency, as it appears to be, but a democratic congress. That would be an interesting picutre for at least the next two years.

Thank you panel. Okay, back in a moment. Election night 1928 coverage.

Welcome back, it is 7:30 on the east coast and two more states have their polls close at this hour. We have projections and both are for the President. Lets look them over.

First in Ohio. Herbert Hoover wins Ohio without much trouble at all. To give you an idea of the extent of it, the President looks to carry the state by better than 2 to 1. Ohio for Hoover,


Herbert Hoover Wins Ohio

And in West Virgnia, not quite as strong for Hoover as Ohio. But still a big win. Hoover wins in West Virgnia. West Virgnia for the President.

Arkansas For Hull. North Carolina Undecided.
Welcome back again. Two more states, Arkansas and North Carolina have had their polls close. These are part of what is usually known to be the democratic solid south. Lets look them over.

In North Carolina, this is a state that was contested by President Hoover at this hour and he might be able to carry it. But, we can't call it at this hour. The race in North Carolina at the presidency is undecided.

But, in Arkansas. This doesn't mean much, but it is something for the democrats. Congressman Hull does go on to carry the state of Arkansas.



Cordell Hull Wins Arkansas
Hull: 80        Hoover: 191        266 needed to win

And we have a major projection. This is a major projection. The state of Tennessee will go to President Hoover. Herbert Hoover carries congressman Hull's home state. Cordell Hull looses his home state as President Hoover carries Tennessee. A major projection for the republicans.

Herbert Hoover Wins Tennessee
Hull: 80        Hoover: 203        266 needed to win

Hoover Reelected as New York and Michigan Put Him Over the Top. South Appears to Remain Democratic.
Good evening and welcome back again. Herbert Hoover has been reelected to the presidency of the united states. Herbert Hoover, a man whose first elected political office was the presidency, does it again tonight as he wins reelection to a second term.

Herbert Hoover Wins 1928 United States Presidential Election

We have some projections to back that up. Lets look them over.

First in Arizona, this is a state that has proven to be democratic through thick and thin since at least the 1912 election. Hoover is competetive there tonight, Hull holds a narowing lead there right now. Undecided in Arizona.

In Colorado, a state competetive early in the campaign, but as election day approached, Hoover pulled away and he carries it tonight. Colorado for Hoover.


Herbert Hoover Wins Colorado

In Kansas, usually a key swing state in close elections. This election does not appear to be close and Kansas swings big for Hoover. President Hoover carries Kansas with him in the victory column. Hoover wins in Kansas.

Herbert Hoover Wins Kansas

Louisiana, republicans didn't expect to be competetive there this year. When the south began to turn, they started to hold out hope. But its not to be. Congressman Hull wins in Louisiana.

Cordell Hull Wins Louisiana

The state of Michigan, President Hoover wins easily in Michigan. Michigan for Hoover.

Herbert Hoover Wins Michigan

Diddo in Minnesota. Herbert Hoover carries Minnesota.

Herbert Hoover Wins Minnesota

President Hoover also wins easily in Nebraska. Cordell Hull thought he would be competetive in this region, kind of an interesting aspect of this election. But, at least for Nebraska, it stays in the republican column tonight.

Herbert Hoover Wins Nebraska

New Mexico, a tighter race there. Hoover leads there, but its undecided at this hour.

New York, this is what probably did it. New York with forty-five electoral votes, Hoover gets sixty percent of the vote in that state, and Hoover takes the election with it. New York goes for Herbert Hoover.


Herbert Hoover Wins New York

President Hoover also gets nearly two thirds of the vote in Rhode Island. Herbert Hoover wins in Rhode Island.

Herbert Hoover Wins Rhode Island

Undecided also in South Dakota. Would be interesting if it went for Hull on a night like this, will it? We don't know. Undecided in South Dakota.

Also in Wisconsin, its undecided in Wisconsin. Hull might be able to steal and deny Hoover a landslide if he could sneak away some of these smaller states expected to go to Hoover. We can't say that yet, its undecided in Wisconsin.

President Hoover does do very well in Wyoming and carries that state in the race for the White House tonight.



Herbert Hoover Wins Wyoming


Lets now look at our electoral map.
Hull: 90        Hoover: 307        266 needed to win

President Hoover has won reelection tonight. He will be returned to the White House for another four years. Congressman Hull was thought to possibly be a strong challenger early in the year, but it was not to be. Herbert Hoover goes on to win a second term as President of the United States. His margin might still be in question. Hoover took off to an early lead and scored reelection early in the evening, however Congressman Hull is keeping a few interesting states undecided at this hour. The south has caught some eye brows too...North Carolina goes for Hull. Congressman Hull has carried the state of North Carolina.

Hull: 102        Hoover: 307        266 needed to win

His hopes to at least get into the south might be going away...Virgnia also, Virgnia also goes for Cordell Hull tonight.

Cordell Hull Wins Virgnia
Hull: 114        Hoover: 307        266 needed to win

Its clear at this hour, President Hoover even though winning what is supposedly a big could be landslide victory. He still apparantly cannot break into the south. Lets come back to election night coverage. Stay with us.

Yeah, I can see Hoover winning TN during a land-slide, just due to it's history. It was one of the more GOP-friendly Southern states. Interesting tl! What's FDR been doing? Or does he even have a political career without a TR Presidency?

FDR is looking at running for governor of New York the next time that seat is up for election. The 1930s are going to prove to show three democrats looking at the nomination for President. These three being FDR, Garner, and Smith.

What's he done in the past? Has his career mostly proceeded as it did in RL, with him in the NY State Senate (1911-1913) and then maybe Thomas Marshall's Assistant Secretary of the Navy (1913-1920)? Or has there been a notable change?
