Electoral history[edit]

Ingram was elected to the Hopewell city council in 1986, and became mayor in 1988.[1]

In 1989, he challenged 28-year Democratic incumbent Charles Hardaway Marks in the 64th House district, but lost. He was re-elected to the Hopewell city council in 1990.[3]

In the 1991 redistricting, the 62nd House district was moved northwards to include Hopewell. Ingram defeated another Democratic incumbent, R. Beasley Jones, for the House seat.[3]
