1916 Congressional Campaign (2412 words)
Trinkle's only chance was to work hard, to build upon a few simple issues, and to try to force Bascom Slemp into some critical mistake.
Trinkle, who spoke well and often, spoke because he loved it, because he looked to a future day, and because it was his only chance of victory.
Trinkle explained to Andrew Jackson Montague that it was "simply a case of too many poll taxes unpaid by Democrats, and too large a campaign fund in hands of the opposition." His public statement was similar, emphasizing his belief that even in defeat the campaign had served to cement the party for the future.
