The fugitive

The Republicans in Wise County are still out looking for the one guy in the City of Norton (as shown here) who voted for George Fitch in the Republican primary. (The vote was Kilgore 42, Fitch 1.) At last report, the search was focusing in on the Main Street area, on the west end of town.

It brings to mind a story told to me about how in the old days in Mississippi, there were no Republicans to speak of, but in the general election for president, every four years, the Republican candidate would get one vote. Then, when Eisenhower ran, he got two votes. "Throw that second one out," declared the Democrat election judge, "somehow the S.O.B. has voted twice."
