On this day in 1992, Hurricane Andrew made landfall in Florida.
The hurricane overwhelmed South Florida, requiring local, state, and federal emergency responses—in the middle of the 1992 primary election season. The Politics of Disaster shows how elected officials adjusted their strategies and activities in the wake of the storm. Sifting through the post-Andrew election results in Florida, David Twigg points out the possible effects of other disaster events on political campaigns.
