In 1948, Lyndon Johnson, a young congressman from Texas, ran against former governor Coke Stevenson, a more senior politician, in the Democratic primary for an open U.S. Senate seat. It was a dirty campaign. Allegations of election fraud ended up in both state court and federal court. At one point in the litigation, Johnson applied to Justice Hugo L. Black to stay an injunction issued by a federal district judge that barred the secretary of state of Texas from putting Johnson's name on the November ballot as the Democratic candidate for senator. Black agreed to consider Johnson's application, and also agreed to hear oral argument on it. The Johnson v. Stevenson case was big news, especially in Texas. Journalists in Washington covering the nation's capital for Texas readers wrote this letter to Black about the case, and the hearing.
