Interview with Geraldine Williams
QUESTION 16
LOUIS MASSIAH:

Okay, let's just move forward a little. Towards the end of the election, and Taft is rising in the polls. Did you ever lose hope? Did you ever think that Stokes would not win? That, that somehow, the White vote that you were counting on would all defect to Taft at this...?

GERALDINE WILLIAMS:

No. I never did. Ah, uh, I never really did, although election night, when we won, it sort of dawned on me and I think I broke out crying. We have beat the machine. You know. We really beat the machine. It happened.

LOUIS MASSIAH:

Let's stop for a second.
