Kerr Scott shocked the political world by appointing Frank Porter Graham, the president of the University of North Carolina and the South’s leading liberal to a U.S. Senate vacancy. But Graham was unable to hold the seat, defeated in a red-baiting and race baiting campaign. The 1950 Senate campaign unsettled Scott, which caused him to retreat on the race issue and damaged him politically.

Keywords:   Kerr Scott, race, race baiting, red-baiting, Frank Porter Graham, 1950 Senate race
