  • Description

    NEW YORK STATE'S GOVERNOR NELSON A. ROCKEFELLER FLEW WITH HIS BRIDE FROM NEW YORK YESTERDAY SUNDAY FOR A TWO-WEEK HONEYMOON ON HIS RANCH IN VENEZUELA.

    THE 54-YEAR-OLD GOVERNOR, REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE TO OPPOSE PRESIDENT KENNEDY IN THE 1964 NATIONAL ELECTIONS, DECLINED TO DISCUSS POLITICS WITH NEWSMEN AT IDLEWILD AIRPORT. HE DIVORCED HIS FIRST WIFE OF THIRTY-ONE YEARS IN 1962, AND HIS BRIDE, DIVORCED HER DOCTOR HUSBAND A MONTH AGO. SHE IS 36 AND HAS FOUR CHILDREN RANGING IN AGE FROM 3 TO 12.

    MANY POLITICIANS BELIEVE DIVORCE TO BE A POLITICAL LIABILITY FOR A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, PARTICULARLY AMONG ROMAN CATHOLIC COUNTRY'S FARMLAND - TWO SECTIONS THAT ARE NORMALLY REPUBLICAN TERRITORIES IN THE NORTH AND MIDWEST AND DEMOCRATIC IN THE SOUTH.

    THE NEWLYWEDS, LONG LINKED IN A ROMANCE NEITHER WOULD ADMIT OR DENY...WERE MARRIED ON SATURDAY. AT THE AIRPORT, ROCKEFELLER SAID BEFORE TELEVISION CAMERAS: "WE HAVE FOUND GREAT HAPPINESS AND WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SHARING THAT HAPPINESS FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES."
