Redfern runs alone

50 years ago, 1964: In a poll conducted by the Associated Press, Sen. Hubert Humphrey topped the balloting for President Johnson's running mate for the November election. There was notable support for both Sargent Shriver and Robert F. Kennedy as well.

25 years ago, 1989: The Rev. Barbara Harris, the first woman elected bishop in the 450-year history of the Anglican church, was confirmed by a majority of the Church's American dioceses. The election still had to be ratified by church bishops, but was expected to pass unopposed.

10 years ago, 2004: The Republican Party failed to field a candidate against State Rep. Chris Redfern, D-Catawba Island. Unless somebody filed to run against him as a write-in candidate by Jan. 12, Redfern would be completely unappossed in his quest for re-election.

Wow, Chris mentioned in the same article with V.P. Hubert Humphrey and Rev. Barbara Harris. What a sad example of the decline in politicians and the rise of the political self serving class.
