Mondale beat Goldwater's record, but did not lose 50 states. He lost 49. Goldwater won his own state and five southern states.

But he lost the 2002 Senate race in MN, so he has the unique distinction of having lost a state-wide election in all 50 states as the nominee of a major party (he lost the other 49 in the 1984 Presidential Election).

He lost a Senate race in which he was a candidate replacing Paul Wellstone who died a week or two before the election.

If we are going to cut and paste different elections for different offices, then I wonder how other presidential candidates did when they ran in more than one presidential race? Hmm.

Let us not forget Hubert Horatio Humphrey, another Minnie state titan.
You know, Minnesota must have some really stupid state Congressman and Senators. It gets back about 72 cents form the federal government for every dollar it kicks in, according to The Tax Foundation. It is 46th, in terms of payback.
Rural states usually make out like bandits in this race, heavily subsized by the urban states.
Not so, Minnesota.

H.H. Humphrey was my cousin and he had a lot of enthusiasm for many causes which he won people over to. I think he would be very disapointed in how the liberal agenda turned out. Unwed mothers raising children without fathers in their lives -- an American Tragedy on an epic scale.

Add to another Minnesota record:

It Just BEAT Detroit.

I winder if HHH could know that the federal government would create a real welfare state--rural America. At the time, he probably thought he was just helping out dairy farmers.

Al Franken.

That's all I have to say about Minnesotans.

As I understand it, Minnesota is the engine of prosperity -- for income tax free South Dakota. My wife's from Brookings, and among other things they've stolen from Minnesota is a 3M plant. Folks in South Dakota LOVE Minnesota!
