A Cold Afternoon with Minnesota Farmers

M. S.
November 1955
New Republic;11/7/55, Vol. 133 Issue 19, p3
The article discusses the political conditions in Minnesota. The State Central Committee of the Democratic-Farmer Labor Party, meeting in Duluth on October 1955, called on politician Adlai Stevenson to become the party's Presidential candidate in 1956. Stevenson is far and away the first choice of Minnesota Democrats. The only real question was whether the committee would bracket politician Hubert Humphrey's name with Stevenson's as Minnesota's Vice Presidential choice. Humphrey certainly is running, but Stevenson's advisers suggested that a joint endorsement would lessen the impact of Minnesota's action across the nation and the committeemen saw the point.
