Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - March 29, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news Cloudy these Days by George e. Sokolsky what of the Republican party Maine Pennsylvania Michigan Connecticut. New York and Many other state that historically have been regarded As Republican arc now wholly or partially in the democratic column. While new York has a democratic governor its two United states senators have been elected As republicans but hic general trend indicates a disintegration of the Republican party which us not sufficiently do Ferent in perspective than the democratic party to excite the voters. In new Jersey the Republican party is in the midst of a very interesting primary fight. About a year ago it was All set for Bernard Shanley. A White House Secretary to be nominated by the Republican party in that state for United states senator. Shanley in due course resigned his White House Job and canvassed Hie state and it was believed that he was sure in. Then Robert Morris came along to conduct a Campaign that nobody would have believed possible. Morris had been counsel to tile Senate internal Security subcommittee from which lie had resigned. Morris criticizes president Eisenhower his policies tile White House Cabal and in effect Calls for a Pun Lebanon of the Republican party. Whether Morris will be nominated or not we shall know after Pri May Day but he has stirred up tile party Iii new Jersey has developed an unanticipated receptivity folios ideas and has put up an old fashioned Type of Campaign which goes right Down to Tho grass roots. If Morris should win the new Jersey nomination or it lie should come off second in a three cornered fight the other candidate being representative Robert w. Kean lie will have established a leadership for right Wing republicanism in new Jersey. This can have widespread repercussions everywhere because whereas most club House or professional republicans have been pro Eisenhower in their expressions of adulation they have been to artists in their party Outlook Many of them Are very weary of the so called White House crowd they fear that the current recession can be As destructive of then party As the 1929 one was. For a while it was assumed that Nelson Rockefeller would be the Republican candidate for governor of new York it is now being suggested that Nelson Rockefeller would prefer to run for United states senator in place of Irving Ives the present incumbent. As Rockefeller represents a a Gravy train a for the professional politicians. His wishes will not be ignored. Although i encounter no pros w to believe that he can. In 1958, be elected to either position. Should mayor Robert Wagner of new York City run for senator on the democratic ticket it is regarded As Likely that he will be elected. Another possibility might be former postmaster general Jim Farley who is one of the most beloved Presona ties in the state without regard to party affiliation. At any rate if Nelson Rockefeller does run for the United states Senate he will come up against Tough opposition which will be aggravated by economic conditions if the recession continues. Besides to most republicans Nelson Rockefeller is a Maverick. He has served in the Roosevelt and Truman administrations in Washington As Well As in the Eisenhower administration. He has always been associated with mrs. Anna Rosenberg who has never been regarded As a Republican and he is close to David Dubinsky the Boss of the Liberal party whereas no one can say that these Are not Ultra reportable associations they Are definitely not Republican associations. For a Man who has been in Public life about 20 years very few7 republicans have Ever encountered Nelson rocket Eller and therefore there Are few Republican attachments to him. The Republican who in new York state has emerged to altogether unexpected Heights of popularity is Louis Lefkowitz the attorney general Lefkowitz has for Many years been what May be called a club House politician. He Vas die chairman of the Law committee of the new York county com i tee. He has. To the Surprise of Democrat As Well As Republican made a competent even Brilliant. Attorney general. He displays balance and real capacity men Are beginning to compare him to Thomas e. Dewey. He could be nominated for governor without inv difficulty. The chances of the Republican party in 1958 depends upon Leo �3kb Bah vol. To no. 75 it. Pleasant. Iowa.
