Jeremiah A Denton (RIP)


For John, BLUFThis man showed the stuff of heroes.



We have lost a great man and an American hero in the death of Senator Jeremiah Denton.  Here is the news from The Washington Post.  In the article:
The cause was complications from a heart ailment, said his son Jim Denton.  Adm. Denton was a native of Alabama, where in 1980 he became the state’s first Republican to win election to the Senate since Reconstruction.
So, I wonder to which party Alabama Senators from the Voting Rights Act of 1965 to 1980 belonged, some 15 years?  This sure doesn't follow the narrative.
