Last week’s trivia question was: When was the last time a state held two Senate elections at the same time, and the two winners were from different parties?
The answer? 1966, in South Carolina. For the first seat, Strom Thurmond, a Republican, was re-elected. The other seat was a special election to succeed the late Senator Olin Johnston. Former Governor Fritz Hollings, a Democrat, was victorious in that one.
