Representative John Tunney. The latter has been improving in the polls even1 taking a five Point Lead to one of them. But Don t underestimate Georges resourcefulness. You could say he has the Luck of the Irish Only in this Case it would be a mean Negless Way of putting it for Gene Tunney a son John is Irish a or part Irish a too. However in be watched George Murphy Ever since we were College classmate together and in be never seen him land anywhere except on his nimble dancers feet. He beat Pierre Salinger the Kennedy Man from the East coast in the 1964 California go around for the . Senate by a soft sell that invited the voters to ask a a unlucky Pierre who had sent him West. He can to do that with Tunney who is to legitimate californian with three congressional terms from Riverside behind him.
