American Governors and Gubernatorial Elections, 1775-1978 Glashan

Peabody successfully contested the election, and by agreement, resigned to let the Lt. Gov. become Governor.
Description 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.

Governor Peabody resigned at 4:25pm MT. Lt. Governor McDonald was sworn in as Governor at 4:30pm MT.
