He lost by an overwhelming margin, something like 87 percent, in the general election, to incumbent Republican Clair Burgener.

Still, you must wonder how so many voted for him in the primary.

Republicans had a similarly embarrassing candidate that year in Michigan's 15th District, with Gerald Carlson, a Nazi. Carlson lost the general election to incumbent William Ford by about 68 to 32 percent. That district had/has a lot of whites who fled Detroit as the black population increased.

The 43rd District has certainly gone through a few changes in 40 years. Not being political; just observing who makes-up the current gov't officials. (NT)The 2 senators & 1 Rep. comprise 3 women; one Jewish, 2 of color...and one of those will be our next VP in Jan.Saturday, November 14, 06:04:48pm
