ABSTRACT
This article focuses on several Republican Party conventions held in Texas. May 3, 1952 was the day of the Republican precinct conventions in Texas. In Harris County, Carl Stearns, Republican National Committeewoman from Texas, was out-numbered at her precinct convention. She led 40 or more Senator Robert A. Taft bolters to the backyard of her own home and held a rump convention. In Dallas, the bolt from the county convention was led by George Atkinson, County Republican Chairman, and as the Taft bolters walked out, one of their leaders, Walter Rogers, rallied them with the cry, "All right, Taft, MacArthur and full-time Republicans, let's walk."
