JFK: "We're heading into nut country today."

From the article: The title derives from an idle remark John F. Kennedy made to his wife as the couple dressed for their fatal trip to to Dallas: “We’re heading into nut country today.”
The assassination of John Kennedy proved disastrous for Republicans across the country and the blow-back was particularly severe in Dallas. Alger, the first Republican congressman elected in Dallas since Reconstruction, was defeated in 1964, in part because, in some Dallas precincts, 85% of registered black voters cast their ballots.
