Winning Nomination

Floyd B. Olson built, almost singlehandedly, a major political party. He got the progressive state income tax enacted. Imagine the state being financed today by the property tax as it was. He boosted the spirits of the people during the depths of the Great Depression. He altered the political culture to enable ordinary folks to get elected to public office.
