The Rise and Fall of the Branchhead Boys

Rob Christensen

University of North Carolina Press

The 1968 election saw the transformation of North Carolina elections with Republicans and African-Americans becoming rising political forces. Campaigning on a law and order ticket, Scott won by putting together a coalition that included rural whites and just enough urban blacks. North Carolina shifted to the political right with Republican Richard Nixon winning the state and with independent George Wallace coming in second.
