A Man's Reach -- A Transforming Life, 29: State Senator

Campaign Flyer, State Senate Election, 1950

"I had to win my senate seat all over again in November 1950. After my hard-fought victory in the special election in February 1949, the campaign twenty months later was an anticlimax. I faced only token opposition. Much to my gratification, St. Anthony Park turned out strongly for me again. My opposition was even weaker in 1954, the third and final time I ran for the senate."
