In contradistinction to much received wisdom on the chronology of how the South became Republican, this chapter emphasizes the development of Republicanism at the state and local levels first—not the presidential. It provides an in-depth and nuanced examination of ties between conservative Democratic Virginians and northern Republicans (especially from Pennsylvania) concerned with segregation, states' rights, economic regulation, and home rule. And again, in a revisionist mode, the chapter stresses a time period prior to the Goldwater campaign of 1964 as central to the development of a Republican South. Much attention is given to the previously understudied role of Virginia's Commission on Constitutional Government and the strategy and tactics of journalist James J. Kilpatrick and the CCG's visionary leader, David J. Mays.
