The Man Who Talks Back

Fitzsimmons, Torn
June 1954
New Republic;6/28/54, Vol. 130 Issue 26, p12
This article focuses on republican leader Wayne L. Hays political ambitions. The democratic Governor of Ohio Frank Lausche, has announced he will run for a fifth two-year term. Hays supporters believe that Lausche is the only one he could not beat, in a nomination fight, and prior to Lausche's announcement, Hays seemed a likely choice. Some elements in the democratic organization in the state are not too keen for Hays, but Lausche has deliberately kept that organization weak and Hays already has challenged it once, successfully.
