How long was Huey Long governor of Louisiana?

The colorful, demagogic Huey Long (1893-1935), nicknamed the “Kingfish,” governed Louisiana from 1928 to 1932, when he resigned to enter the U.S. Senate.

Elected in 1930, he deferred his entry into the Senate until 1932.

He stayed there until he was killed by an assassin’s bullet in 1935. His wife finished his term.
