Have you heard the news about Talmadge? He died before he could take office.
Arnall isn't giving up the position 'till it all gets handled...
We've got an idea to get Herman in office.
Thompson will want the position, as well.
We all want Herman - there's no way Thompson will get it.
I heard Arnall is gonna give up the spot soon.
The government's a mess right now. Talmadge supporters are trying to get Herman in, but Thompson wants it and Arnall won't leave.
The court has ruled that Thompson is the rightful governor, considering his position as lieutenant governor before Talmadge's death.
I really did not expect that. Things might've been different if those two had just given up. Lieutenant governor and the old governor fighting for the position... useless.
In the Three Governors Controversy, Talmadge died before he could take office - his supporters advocated for his son to take the position, and the General Assembly was on their side. Unfortunately for them, Arnall refused to leave until the situation was handled, and the lieutenant governor elect, Thompson, was claiming right to the position. Eventually the situation was settled, and the court ruled that Thompson was the rightful governor - though Herman Talmadge easily beat him in the following election.
