Statistically notable votes are the votes that are most surprising, or least predictable, given how other members of each voter’s party voted.
After my reading about Iowa in history books, I expected to see Republicans that voted nay to civil rights and I was correct. I read about the county where people just did not want to desegregate. And I read about Congresswoman Liz Cheney’s attack on Congresswoman Ocasio-Lopez and her use of concentration camps in describing the detention camps. I wondered about Wyoming and you can see that the nay vote cast there. This may not reflect on the vast the majority of voters in Wyoming at that time, but you never know. Perhaps Congresswoman Cheney can give us a long lesson about the racial history of Wyoming? And where were the people of Wyoming when two-thirds of our nation did not want to take in Jewish refugees to save their lives. Keep in mind that Wyoming only had one vote and we wish to be fair to the people and know more about the opposition at that time. I do feel that the truth has to be told about Trump and Israel, particularly about his moving of the Embassy to Jerusalem and the annexation of land that is being talked about. There should be a national debate to inform the people about the facts and not just the facts that are being used by both sides in their arguments. Contact me for more information.
North Carolina, Virginia, Texas, Tennessee, Florida had Republicans that voted nay for Civil Rights, but states considered to be more liberal had Republicans voting nay as well.
Six Republican senators voted nay for Civil Rights.
Arkansas where Tom Cotton comes from voted this way.
|Nay||AR 1st||D||Gathings, Ezekiel|
|Nay||AR 2nd||D||Mills, Wilbur|
|Nay||AR 3rd||D||Trimble, James|
|Nay||AR 4th||D||Harris, Oren|
And the big question in being fair is where did Republicans who ran for office stand on Civil Rights before 1964?
