Looks like it's not happening this time either.  In fact, I guess this would be the first presidential election since 1972 in which neither ticket includes a southerner....assuming you don't count Maryland (or Delaware, since, as Joe Biden reminds us, it "was a slave state").

Actually, if you *do* count Maryland as the South, but not Delaware, then this is the first election without a southerner on either ticket since....what?  1944?

I'd say 1940, because by that logic, Missouri is just as much a Southern state as Delaware or Maryland.

Didn't happen in 2012 either.  Another GOP ticket with two Yankees.

It's sort of nice that "Yankee" may be used not only in the original sense of New England WASP and the modern internationally accepted sense of American Citizen - that there are also a number of hazily-defined intermediate usages that have their historical reasons. It renders so many sentences featuring the term lovely, meaningless and postmodern.

1864 was the Union Party, not the Republican Party.  Also the epithet GOP dates to 1884.

Interesting that it hasn't happened. Perhaps such states went from solidly Democratic to the base of the GOP, making it unnecessary to pander to them. Texans (I believe) were all from big political families.

BTW, this is the first GOP ticket of 2 non-Protestants since when?

Never. 

If you say Maryland is southern, you had Agnew in 1968 and 1972.  It was far more of a "southern" state at that time.

I don't consider Arizona 'the South', so 2008 didn't have any Southerners either.

I wrote that in 2008, so "this election" obviously referred to the 2008 election.

The correct answer is: Spiro Agnew.

Maybe Agnew, but I don't think so from the former Confederacy.

If the South had won the war, instead of a West Virginia, there might well have been a division of Maryland, with the Eastern Shore joining the Confederacy as East Maryland.  Indeed, there had been proposals before the Civil War to have the Eastern and Western Shores become separate states or have the Eastern Shores of Maryland and Virginia join Delaware as a single State encompassing the whole Delmarva Peninsula (tho not by that name as it didn't come into use until the early 20th century.

It's someone from a southern state other than Texas. Reading comprehension! Smiley

I don't know where people get this idea that Texas is somehow a Southern state.

It depends on the part of Texas. East Texas from Texarkana down through Tyler and Marshall to Port Arthur and Beaumont, for instance, is obviously Southern culturally, whereas Midland and Odessa and Lubbock are about as Western as you can get.

Those Texas Republicans who have been nominated for Vice President and President, however, have not been associated with the parts of Texas that most people would consider Southern, unless you count the part of Houston that H.W. represented in the House.

I wouldn't consider the part of Maryland that Spiro Agnew was from remotely Southern either.

As a part of the Confederacy, Texas fits very vell into "Southern states" category. If only historically.

No, but Democrats have nominated many, as well as a few Southerners from Texas.
