She was fairly elected by local constituents.

She was stricken from the ballot before anyone had the opportunity to vote for her.

I wonder why Arizona got this:

‘This is the law,’ Mr. Gimbut said, arguing that the 1910 act granting Arizona statehood required officeholders to perform their duties in English without the aid of a translator. ‘It’s been on the books since statehood.’

and New Mexico came into the union six weeks earlier with a constitution mandating bilingualism.
