Voter repudiation

In the Democratic primary held yesterday in St. Louis, the incumbent mayor got only 5% of the vote. He had no major scandals and no terrible disasters over the last four years. It seems to me he was just a lousy politician who was better at making people dislike him than he was at building a base.

Question – do any of you know of any elected official who actively campaigned for re-election and was so soundly defeated?
