  • Description

    SENATOR MARGARET CHASE SMITH, REPUBLICAN REPRESENTATIVE OF THE STATE OF MAINE, IS REPORTED TO BE SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING OFFERING HERSELF AS A CANDIDATE FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION NEXT YEAR. SHE WILL HAVE TO ENTER SEVERAL STATE PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARIES.

    AT THE MOMENT, THERE IS CONSIDERABLE DIFFERENCE OF OPINION WITHIN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WHO WILL BE ITS CHOICE IN A CONTEST AGAINST THE DEMOCRAT CANDIDATE -- MOST LIKELY TO BE PRESIDENT KENNEDY.

    TO GIVE PARTY SUPPORTERS AN ALTERNATIVE CHOICE BETWEEN NEW YORK GOVERNOR NELSON ROCKEFELLER AND SENATOR BARRY GOLDWATER IS THE AIM OF SENATOR MARGARET SMITH. BOTH THESE MEN REPRESENT DIAMETRICALLY OPPOSITE VIEWS WITHIN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, SO THAT A COMPROMISE CHOICE WOULD ATTRACT CONSIDERABLE SUPPORT.
