ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the views of Alexander Wiley, who was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1938, about the policies of U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower. In June 1953, after Wiley had twice won re-election, the 4,000 delegates to the state Republican convention hissed and booed him. Later they adopted a resolution censuring Wiley, because, as chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, he had stood with their own President in opposing the Bricker amendment. This uprising at Madison , Wisconsin was no spontaneous demonstration. For weeks the delegates had been besieged with literature from the committee for Constitutional Government, the American Bar Association and other groups favoring the Bricker amendment.
