Even earlier, in 1966, another way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory was practiced by the Maryland Democratic Party. There were many candidates in the Democratic Primary. Two were liberal candidates who drew about 29 percent and 27 percent respectively. Another was a Dixiecrat candidate named George Mahoney. His campaign slogan was the putatively racist chant of: "Your home is your castle, protect it." He won the Democratic Primary with less than 31 percent of the vote. In the general election, the Republican candidate, Baltimore County Executive Spiro Agnew, won with, among other advantages 80 percent of the African-American vote in Baltimore City. A third candidate, Hyman Pressman, drew 10 percent of the total vote. If all Pressman's votes had gone to Mahoney he would have won. Agnew later went on to be vice president of the nation, and fell from grace when his alleged penchant for collecting bribes became known.
