The answer? Matthew Welsh. He was the stand-in for President Johnson in the 1964 Democratic primary in Indiana, where he was the governor. He only ran in that one state, where he beat George Wallace better than 2-to-1, and received more than 376,000 votes in the process.
And for the first time in Political Junkie memory, NO ONE had the correct answer. A lot of Birch Bayh and Dick Lugar guesses, but none for Matt Welsh.
