General election

Candidates

George W. Johnson, an attorney in Greenwood, Sebastian County, deliberately abandoned the race in September 1958.[citation needed] He traveled to his son's home in Isle, Minnesota. He told his family, "Mr. Faubus is a fine man and I support him whole-heartedly."[citation needed] He genuinely and naively believed that blacks were intellectually deficient and needed their own schools.
