On November 6, 1928, Republican presidential candidate Herbert Clark Hoover won a national landslide victory, receiving over fifty-eight per cent of the popular vote and carrying all but eight states. Among the states supporting Hoover were Virginia, North Carolina, Texas, and Florida, the first Republican victories in these southern states since Reconstruction more than a half century earlier.
