Page 4 Lt. Oov. William Winter is coming u o on a crucial bench- mark in a political career which ha extended back over more than two deeP, des. It ls generally conceded that the personable Grenada native will make a second race for gov- ernor in 1975. an ambition he has entertained since he first was electecl to the state legis- lature in the late fifties. He ran. unsuccessfully, for the ted office in 1967. And. at the time. he filled the hnage of the ycun comer. He was 44 then. And his political record included service in the state legislature, a stnt as State Tax Collector, .s ,well as four years as State Treasurer. His record favoring govern- mental reforms and his progres- sive outlook appealed to a broad ectrum of voters tllat year including young voters, blacks and a coterie c.f supporters he had accumulated over several yenrs of political campaigning, Winter made the primary run- .off. but lost. in the windup, to former Congressman John Bell Williams. who had come tmme from Washington with a mar- tyred image after being de- frocked by the Democratic cau- cu in the U. S. House of Rep- resentatives. In 1971 he made the decision, which he later is kncwn to have reretted to run for lieutenant overnor. instead of trying for the chief executive's post. He won handily in the first primary and now is entering the closing months of his second year , .econd in command ,and presiding officer of the state senate As it stands today, however, the situation with which he is faced in an.ether 'run for gov- ernor In 1975 is far removed from the circumstances con- frnntin him in 1967. He is older for one thing, no longer equipped with the image of the fresh new face on the state gubernatorial scene. For another thing, he will be run- ning against the tide of hLstory. In this century, only two lieu- tenant governors. T. O. Bilbo and Paul B. Johnson. have man- aged to be elected governor run- ning from the lieutenant gov- ernor's office. The crux of the problem with the public is that as lieutenant governor, Winter may be identi- fied ,with the current adminis- tration which, like others before it, has become notably unpopu- lar in its second year. Added to that is the fact that Mayor Charles Evers of Fayette is planning to run for governor in t, he Democratic primary in 1975. Conventional wisdom would concede him the majority of black voters in such a race It will be interesting to see how Winter will approach his 1975 'run for the governor's of- fice. In the face of the fact that he will have stiff compe- tition, that he is now viewed as an established candidate to the youner voters, and that he will be attempting to move up from the office of lieutenant gover- nor. ]]is strategy will need to be artful. In fact, it is a charitable con- cession to say that he has his work cut cut for him. NOTE--State Senator James Molpus of Cla'rksdalc flatly enies that he wans the job of superintendent of the state penitentiary as reported in this column last week. Molpus told Outlook that un- der no circumstances would he consider the job.
