Mrs.Murphy, divorced mother of four, married the divorced Rockefeller last month.He had been considered a leading contender for the 1964 Republican Party nomination to oppose President Kennedy.His divorce and remarriage to a recently-divorced woman has caused an upsurge of feeling that he now cannot win the presidential nomination.There are reports, however, that Rockefeller feels his new bride will be a political asset, particularly if she gets out into the country and meets people.
