John Nance Garner, the farm boy who heenme the greatest Vice
President since Thomas JefTerson. wit] he officially presented to the
nation hy his native Texas this month as a candidate for ['resident of
the United States.
Patriotic Texans wilt assemble at precinct conventions next Satur-
day, May 4, and at county conventions the following Tuesday, where
delegates will he chosen for the state convention. !t is expected that
they will adopt resolutions endorsing the Roosevelt-Garner administra-
tion and urging the nomination of their favorite son as the ['resident's
most togical successor.
Unlike the favorite-son candidates of most states. John Garner is a
[eading choice for the nomination. His unexampled public record makes
him the most Unique statesman of our time. Not only is he the only
[iving man who has presided over both Houses of Congress, but he is
the only Southerner who has been elected to a national office by a vote
of alt the people of the United States since before the Civi! War.
Because of his libera) record, rural background, and unquestioned
Americanism, politica) observers in Washington believe he is the best
bet to carry the Democratic )'arty forward to victory this fall. .
