U.S. Senator Huey Long, the Political "Kingfish" of Louisiana, ca. 1933
Huey Long served as governor of Louisiana from 1928-32 and then as U.S. Senator from 1932-35. Though he supported Roosevelt in the 1932 presidential election, Long broke from the president in 1933, proposing a more radical redistribution of wealth than that offered by the New Deal. Long, known in Louisiana as "the Kingfish," proposed an alternative to the New Deal titled "Share Our Wealth."
