Leon D. Young Edit Profile
Attended, University Wisconsin, Milwaukee.
Only one potential competitor had time to file nomination papers, since no challengers had planned to file against Coggs for the Democratic nomination (tantamount to election in this heavily-African-American, reliably Democratic district). (Wisconsin's statutes have been changed to prevent such a surprise being repeated) Young was elected to his aunt’s seat and has been re-elected ever since.
