Transcript STATE POLITICS ON CAMPUS Ron Paul, a 43-year-old Republican from Lake Jackson and a gynecologist, defeated his incumbent Democratic opponent, Bob Gam mage, in the race for U.S. Representative from the 22nd District here. Paul won by less than one percent of the votes cast, claiming 54,426 votes to Gam- mage's 53,190 votes, in the closest race of allheal House of Representative elections. Paul first won over Gam mage in a special election in 1973 to replace longtime representative Bob Casey, who resigned his office to take a seat on the U.S. Maritime Commission. Gam mage won over Paul in 1976 and held the seat until Paul again defeated him in the 1978 election. Paul is one of the two Republicans to replace Texas Democrats in Congress this year. Paul received most of his votes from affluent white voters. He said one of the first things he would do in Washington would be to introduce legislation to stop inflation. Paul said he planned to work diligently to cut wasteful spending in government, saying we (the government) are in financial trouble. Bob Gammage, incumbent Democrat, lost his bide for re-election as U.S. Representative from the 22nd District here, earning 53,190 votes to Republican opponent Ron Paul's 54,246 votes in the November 1978 elections. This was the third time the two had vied for tne same seat. Gammage, a 40-year-old former state senator, won over Paul in a 1976 general election by less than 300 votes of 190,000 cast in that election. In 1973, Paul won over Gammage in a special election. After his loss in the fall elections. Gammage said he thought he would have won if a higher percentage of voters — just under 40 percent of local voters turned out — had turned out because there are more Democrats than Republicans in the 22nd District. Gammage pulled the majority of his votes from the blue-collar and working class communities. Gammage also said he had no plans to seek public office again, but that this did not necessarily mean he would not run again sometime in the future. Gammage had been in public office eight years before his defeat last November. 92
