A Man's Reach -- A Transforming Life, 46: Another Try for Governor?

Editorial Cartoon, Jerry Fearing, St. Paul Pioneer Press, 1966

"I think if I had announced my candidacy early and worked hard to organize Republican convention delegates in 1965 and 1966, I could have been the party's nominee. Instead, I was a latecomer to the race and ran third in the convention's balloting, behind South St. Paul attorney Harold LeVander and insurance executive John Pillsbury. My old 1949 state senate rival William Randall was also a candidate."
