Ronnie Flippo was a member of the House of Representatives from Alabama. He served from 1976 to 1991 as a popular conservative Democrat; his closest re-election challenge came in 1988 when he was re-elected against token Republican opposition, 65% to 35%.

Flippo decided not to run for re-election to the House in 1990, instead choosing to run for Governor of Alabama; he finished a dismal fourth in the Democratic primary with only 17.27% of the vote, finishing behind former Governor Fob James, then-Attorney General Don Siegelman, and eventual nominee Paul Hubbert.
