District 63B comprises parts of Minneapolis, Minnesota, in Hennepin County. John Drew was an Independent candidate, although he held several Republican ideals and was endorsed by the party. He served in several legislative sessions from 1979 to 1982. He ran for a position as a State Representative in 1982, but lost to Dick Cohen. The election was notable for Drew losing by a mere 14 votes causing a recount to be needed. The recount only confirmed his loss. He tried to enter politics once more in 1986 for Minnesota Treasurer, but lost that election as well.
