The GOP Team Is Chosen

Riggs, Robert L.
September 1955
New Republic;9/19/55, Vol. 133 Issue 12, p10
The article focuses on the political condition of the U.S., as of September 19, 1955. The pattern for the Republican campaign in was 1956 was made clear at last week's school for 48 state chairmen. Delivering the high-level, spiritual, duty-laden appeals for votes for all GOP candidates will be Dwight D. Eisenhower. What the Republicans learned in 1954 is that their chief problem is to transfer to other Republican candidates some of Eisenhower's great personal popularity, which is why the three-day school of instruction was conducted for state chairmen rather than for members of the Republican National Committee.
