The book “United States Congressional Elections 1788-1997″, by Michael J. Dubin, published in 1998, sells new for $409.40. It has election returns for every individual who ever ran for Congress in a general election, including the party label, the vote, and the percentage of the vote.
It is one of my two most precious reference books (the other is “The Historical Atlas of Political Parties in the U.S. Congress 1789-1989″, by Kenneth Martis). Fairvote is selling copies of Dubin’s 1,005-page book for only $20, which includes shipping. Obviously there is a limited supply, so it’s first come-first serve.
Amazon does have a few used copies of Dubin’s book for $88.00 plus shipping, but the Fairvote copies are new. To buy the book from Fairvote, send a check for $20 to Fairvote, 6930 Carroll Ave., #610, Takoma Park Md 20912.
