James Hobson "Jimmy" Morrison, Sr., was a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives from Louisiana's 6th congressional district, who served from 1943 to 1967. Considered to have been a liberal by southern standards at the time, Morrison was denied party renomination in 1966 by the strongly conservative John Richard Rarick, an attorney and former state district court judge in St. Francisville, the seat of West Feliciana Parish in south Louisiana.
