Democrats Could Win 3-2 Margins in House, Senate

(Continued from Page 1)
peared certain of picking up one
House seat, had a good chance of
gathering in three more, and an
outside chance of ousting two
other Republicans.
Clear across the nation, in New
York, wealthy Nelson Rockefeller
flashed to the front in specula-'
tion about 1960. In a race in
which another millionaire, Demo-
crat Averell Harriman, once
looked like a shoo-in for a second

term as governor. Rockefeller had
worked his way spectacularly into
the role of favorite. It was close,
but the most expert guesses were
that R o c k e f e 11 e r would come
through by a nose.
Rockefeller held out his coat-
tails to Rep. Kenneth Keating,
bidding for the United States Sen-
ate. But Rep. Keating appeared to
be trailing Democrat Frank Ho-
gan, Manhattan district attor-
ney. in the battle for a seat now
held by the GOP.
Try for Victories
Followers of Sen. John F. Ken-
nedy in Massachusetts and Sen.
Stuart Symington in Missouri
were trying to drum up landslide
victories for them, in bids for ad-
ditional Senate terms. The idea
was .to give them added prestige
as presidential timber for 1960.
Sen. Kennedy almost rocketed
into the vice-presidential nomina-
tion two years ago.
Democrat Foster Furcolo is ex-
pected to repeat as governor in
Massachusetts, although the race
is fairly close.
In Michigan, Gov. G. Mennen
Williams, another Democratic
presidential possibility, is after an
unprecedented sixth term, as gov-
ernor and likely to get it. Repub-
lican Sen. Charles E. Potter is lag-
ging slight behind Democratic Lt.
Gov. Philip A. Hart.
Aspirations Tied
Whatever presidential aspira-

tions Gov. Robert Meyner of Newr
Jersey may have are tied to some
degree to a Democratic Senate
victory in New Jersey.
In the closing days of the cam-
paign, the contest was a stand-
off between a veteran Republican
House mpember, Robert W. Kean,
and a young, personable former

dog for first time in modern po-
litical history. David Lawrence.
Democratic mayor of Pittsburgh,
expected to waltz off with gover-
norship in race with pretzel maker
Arthur T. McGonigle.
Gov. George M. Leader, seeking
to switch to GOP-held Senate
seat, favored over veteran Rep.
Hugh Scott. For first time in
more than a century, state would
have two Democratic senators,
Four Republican, two Democratic
House districts doubtful.
Senators Tussle
West Virginia-Two GOP Sen-
ators, Chapman Revercomb and
John D. Hoblitzell Jr., in uphill
tussles. Sen. Revercomb rated as
having a better chance over Dem-
ocratic Rep. Robert C. Byrd than
Sen. Hoblitzell over former con-
gressman Jennings Randolph. Re-
publicans have chance here of
upset in one House race.
Maryland - Republican Sen. J.
Glenn Beall has thin edge over
Democratic Senate rival, Mayor
Thomas D'Alesandro of Balti-
more. Democrat J. Millard Tawes
moved up from favorite to big
favorite to' capture Republican
governorship against Rep. James
P. S. Devereux. Democrats also
a good bet to seize one House
seat, with fair chance at another.
Delaware - In close contest for
another term, Republican Sen.
Jofin J. Williams should down
Democrat Elbert N. Carvel.
Ohio - Republican Sen. John
W. Bricker looks safe, but not
GOP governorship. in rematch
with Gov. C. William O'Neill, who
won by 427,000 in 1956, Democrat
Michael V. Disalle heavily fa-
vored. Three GOP House seats
may be in jeopardy.
Indiana - In tight race for Re-
publican Senate seat, Democrat
Vance Hartke the likely winner
over Gov. Harold W. Handley.
Democratic trend should carry
over to House races with fair
chance for party to pick up four
Wisconsin - Democrats feel
their chances best in years and
probably will re-elect a. Senator,
William Proxmire, for first time

By The Associated Press
Thirty-two states elect govern-
ors Tuesday, but national interest
centers mainly on states at oppo-
site ends of the nation, New York
and California.
In New York Republicans have
high hopes for a Nelson Rockefel-
ter victory over Democratic in-
cumbent Averell Harriman in the
battle of the millionaires.
In California, Democrats sound
supremely confident that Atty.
Gen. Edmund 0. (Pat) Brown
will decisively defeat William F.
Knowland, who stepped out as
GOP Senate leader to make the
race for governor,
Give Demnocrat's Chance
In South Dakota, the Democrats
are given their best chance of
electing a governor in 22 years.
But there, as in Nebraska and
North Dakota, the Republicans
are favored to win.
And in Republican rock-ribbed
New Hampshire, Democrat Ber-
nard L. Boutin is rated only an
outside chance to defeat Republi-
can Wesley Powell.


Vermont, as usual, is listed in
the Republican column, with GOP
candidates regarded as the prob-
able winners also in Idaho, Wis-
consin and Wyoming.
Some observers thing A. M.
Derr, the Democratic candidate
in Idaho, hurt his chances by
coming out in favor of legalized
casino-type gambling on a local
option basis. His GOP opponent
is Robert E. Smylie, the incum-
bent, who is favored.
Certain Winners
Democrats are certain winners
in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia,
Suth Carolina and Texas. In
'Georgia and South Carolina the
Republicans didn't even put up
Twelve Democratic and eight
Republica nincumbents are seek-
ing re-election. The present line-
up nationally is 29 Democrats and
19 Republicans. Maine, which
voted ahead of the rest of the
nation for the last time this year,
elected Democrat Clinton A. Clau-
son in September. A
