Photograph article dated October 25, 1960 partially reads, "Both candidates for Congress from the 21st District were declared the winner in 1958, but only Edgar W. Hiestand went to Washington. His opponent, Mrs. Rudd Brown, was the Congressman from the time the polls closed Tuesday night until a 10,000-vote counting error was discovered Wednesday morning. Now Republican Hiestand and Democrat Mrs. Brown are competing for the seat again, and neither wants so breathless a photo finish this year." Pictured is Congressman Edgar W. Hiestand, candidate for the 21st District.
