June 1952
New Republic;6/9/52, Vol. 126 Issue 23, p5
The article presents discussion on the possible Democratic Party nomination of Adlai E. Stevenson for U.S. presidential election. It is possible that a Democratic deadlock will develop and that someone other than one of active contenders will be chosen to lead the Democrats. At the present moment Alben Barkley, Averell Harriman, Estes Kefauver, Robert Kerr, Brien McMahon and Richard Russell are in the race. Harriman, Kefauver and Russell are running far in front of the rest of the pack. If neither Harriman or Kefauver approximates 600 votes by the third ballot, the Democrats, seeing in the Republican feud the making of a sixth straight Democratic victory, will be bent on attaining agreement on a party candidate of the stature to win. The move if Kefauver or Harriman fail to secure a majority would almost certainly be to Adlai E. Stevenson.
