The Growth of Stuart Symington

Straight, Michael
June 1954
New Republic;6/21/54, Vol. 130 Issue 25, p12
This article presents information on U.S. politics and governement. When U.S. politician Stuart Symington ran for the United States Senate in 1952, he stood as a moderate conservative, in opposition to a Truman Democrat. U.S. Senator, J. McCarthy went down to Missouri to campaign against him and for the Republican candidate, James Kem. But when Symington came to Washington, defense and not McCarthy was his great concern. Very slowly he came to resent McCarthy as he watched him run his subcommittee. But he played no important part on the subcommittee and disliked it as a futile diversion from his major concern. But when McCarthy turned against the pentagon his attitude hardened.
