Show/Hide This Week's ScuttleButton Answer

Come Home America/McGovern Shriver — The revised 1972 Democratic ticket, which lost in a landslide to Nixon and Agnew.

Dean Heller/U.S. Senate — A Nevada Republican, he was appointed to the seat in 2011 following the resignation of John Ensign (R) and won election to a full term the following year.

It’s High Time! — Robert King High, the mayor of Miami, sought the Democratic nomination for governor of Florida in 1964 (lost primary) and 1966 (won primary but lost general).

Mark Warda for Member At-Large — No clue on this one.

So, when you combine Come + Heller + High + Warda, you kinda get …

Come Hell or High Water.  Which we do with ScuttleButton despite complaints that the puzzles are too easy or too hard.

And the randomly-selected winner is … John Pietrowski of Toledo, Ohio.  John wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
