This data collection contains information at the state level on candidates contesting southern primary elections for senator and governor from 1920-1972. Included are the names and party identifications of all candidates receiving votes in selected regular and runoff primary elections, 1920-1972, as well as the total votes received by each candidate and the candidate's percentage of the total vote. These data were developed by the ICPSR staff to augment and further describe the files of county-level southern primary election data described in the data collections SOUTHERN PRIMARY AND GENERAL ELECTION DATA, 1920-1949 (ICPSR 0071) and SOUTHERN PRIMARY AND GENERAL ELECTION DATA, 1946-1972 (ICPSR 0072).
