ABSTRACT
This article reports that the few "outsiders" who sensed impending disaster for the Republicans in Maine was Vice-President Richard Nixon, who strayed into the state for a brief golfing vacation with the confident greeting that "Maine is one state that is safe." Hastily reversing his public declaration that he would stay out of the Maine campaign, the Vice-President yoked all the top brass of the GOP into a statewide TV-radio production monopolizing all outlets. Edmund Muskie, the Democratic winner for the Governorship, had been declared as a New Deal-Fair Deal Democrat.
