Burdick, technically Republican, actually a Non-Partisan Leaguer, and with a son now running for U.S. Senator on the Democratic ticket. Different but comparable forces have been operative in the Southeast. The prevailing opinion is that Minnesota damaged political candidate Adlai Stevenson heavily, if it did not sink him; but there is a possibility that it actually saved him.
