Show/Hide This Week's ScuttleButton Answer

Rowland Governor ’94 — John Rowland, a former Republican congressman from Connecticut, was elected governor on his second try in 1994.

Honor/Ribicoff — Another Connecticut button, this is for Sen. Abe Ribicoff’s (D) second-term victory in 1968.

Gloria La Riva for Governor/Peace & Freedom Party — California, 1994.

So, when you add Rowland + Honor + Riva, you kinda get …

Rollin’ on the River.  The key line of the song “Proud Mary,” sung by Creedence Clearwater Revival and, as shown below, Tina Turner.  This is hardly my favorite song.  But Tina knows how to put on a show.

And the randomly-selected winner is … Bryan Harada of Cambridge, Mass.  Brian wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
