With Lakeshore Public Radio in Merrillville, Ind., becoming the latest station to carry the Political Junkie program, it’s obviously time for a Hoosier-related trivia question! Until Pete Buttigieg becomes the one to break the record (?), the question is: What presidential candidate from Indiana received the most votes in the primaries? You need to name the candidate and the year.
Submit your answer in the box below. We’ll pick a winner at random from the bunch. The winner will get a fabulous Political Junkie button. And don’t forget to sign up for our Political Junkie newsletter. You’ll get all the latest from Team PJ every issue.
The answer? Franklin D. Roosevelt. While the Washington Senators won the World Series in 1924, they also appeared in the Fall Classic in 1925 and 1933 — FDR’s first year as president.
And the randomly selected winner is … Clifford Oto of Elk Grove, Calif. Clifford wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
