American Governors and Gubernatorial Elections, 1775-1978 Glashan
Peabody successfully contested the election, and by agreement, resigned to let the Lt. Gov. become Governor.
The year was also one of great political intrigue in Colorado. In a matter of 24 hours the state had three Governors. It appeared Democrat Alva Adams had been elected for a third time. But voter fraud allegations caused Republican James Peabody to be installed. Then fraud allegations against him caused the Lieutenant Governor, Republican Jesse McDonald, to assume the office.
