Primary Elections and Presidential Hopefuls

October 1955
New Republic;10/31/55, Vol. 133 Issue 18, p3
This article focuses on the 1956 presidential election primaries and the presidential electoral prospects of the presidential candidates. Republican leaders are now drifting toward a pattern of favorite son candidates who can be used as stalking horses in the 18 states that hold presidential primaries in 1956. California Governor Goodwin Knight has declared himself the California favorite son if the President does not run. Democrats, on the other hand, will use the primaries as a pre-convention warmup. Two leading contenders, Adlai Stevenson and Estes Kefauver, are each expected to enter and win several early primaries, building up to a final bout very lake in the campaign in California.
