Summary:
The election of 1948 helped to bring about a dramatic turning point in Florida politics. Prior to this time, Florida was arbitrarily dominated by the Democratic party. This election is significant because 1948 helped give rise to the reemergence of a two-party political system in Florida. It was in 1948 that the Republicans began their long rise out of obscurity. The Dixiecrats and Progressive parties were also active in this campaign. This paper will examine the activities of each of these four political parties within the state during 1948 and attempt to show how this political rebirth contributed to alter Florida politics.
