Paraphrase:
Land Party's one political victory took place in 1935.
 Most of its support that year was from rural and rural-ish areas. Economic problems had hit that agricultural sector of the pop. hardest and Land Party targeted those groups. Conclusion: Land Party's success was due to combination of specifically addressing the concerns of those groups, and because of the economic problems.

Stem: Each of the following, if true, strengthens the historian's argument EXCEPT:

I suppose the key is the word "urban".

yeah, that's what I figured--it has nothing to do with the historian's argument so clearly it doesn't support it.

I suppose some people misread that as "rural".  What was the other popular choice?  D or E?
