LYNDON B. JOHNSON
"As for your suggestions that I switch from the Legislative to the Executive Branch...I am not a candidate for any office except the one I now hold".
Typed Letter Signed: "Lyndon B. Johnson" as U.S. Senator, 1p, 8x10½, Office of the Democratic Leader, Washington, D.C., 1959 October 7. To William L. Cowan, Postmaster, Dublin, Texas. In full: "Thanks so much for your letter. I certainly do appreciate your taking the time and trouble to cover the questions in my newsletter so thoroughly. Your detailed views on these important matters are just exactly what I need to know to do a good job. As for your suggestions that I switch from the Legislative to the Executive Branch, I surely am grateful for your confidence in me, but I must repeat what I have said over and over again. That is that I am not a candidate for any office except the one I now hold, and the thing I want most to do is to merit the support of folks like you who have entrusted me with this high responsibility. Thanks again, and warm best wishes." In 1956, Johnson had been a favorite son candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, finishing third in voting that nominated Adlai E. Stevenson on the first ballot. In 1960, Lyndon B. Johnson did not announce his candidacy during the primaries. He spoke with the delegates chosen through the then more common Caucus/Convention process. It was not until the week before the Convention (July 11-15, 1960) that he officially announced his candidacy. Without entering a single primary, but getting support using the talents that made him an effective Senate leader, Lyndon B. Johnson finished second to John F. Kennedy, who won the nomination on the first ballot. Kennedy then selected Johnson as his running mate and they were elected on November 8, 1960. Slight beading of ink. Fine condition.
