Associaied Press Political Writer
WASHINGTON-Some Republi-
can leaders who have stood apart
or joined reluctantly in Sen. Barry
Goldwater's presidential campaign
are going after governorships in
1965 and 1966 in an effort to re-
gain party control.
While they aren't saying so pub-
licly, prominent GOP figures who
opposed Goldwater's nomination
are almost all convinced that the
Arizona senator will be defeated
in November by Democratic Presi-
dent Lyndon B. Johnson. ,
Even if he is, however, Gold-
water will remain in control of the
GOP national machinery which
he and his conservative associates
have taken over lock, stock and
barrel. The moderates thus will
face the problem of how to regain
the party command they held at
the presidential level intil Gold-
water swept all before him at
San Francisco.
Impossible Task
mm informnalconferences the
moderates have agreed that it
would be an almost impossible
task to try to overturn conserva-
tive control of the National Com-
mittee, members of which were
elected for four-year terms at the
July nominating convention.
But they see the possibility,
through the election of Repubbli-
can governors who share their,
views, of making their weight felt
in the direction of party affairs
in the next four years and in the
choice of a nominee in 1968.,
In line with this thinking, Sen.
Clifford P. Case (R-NJ) has held.
open the possibility that he might
make the race for governor of New
Jersey next year.
Although it is two years ahead,
Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel (R-Calif)'
is reported considering the idea
of seeking the governorship in
The moderates have an ally in
New York Gov. Nelson A. Rocke-
feller or Sen. Jacob K. Javits I

Sen. Clifford Case (R-NJ), left, and Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel (R-
Cal), have hinted they may seek governorships in their respective
states in 1965 and 1966. They aim to wrest control of the
Republican party machinery from Sen. Barry Goldwater, the
Republican presidential nominee.
In 1966 there are gubernatorial
races in 33 states, in which Re-
publicans now hold 13 offices.
Only a few of these GOP state
executives supported Goldwater
for the nomination, while several
openly opposed him.

Some of these governors can run
for re-election and some, like Gov.
William W. Scranton of Pennsyl-
vania who went down to the wire
against Goldwater at the conven-
tion, are barred by state law from
seeking further tenure.
The Republican moderates are
convinced that if Goldwater is
defeated in November, they can
sell the idea to state organizations
that their candidates for governor
will have to be more liberal than
the Arizona senator to win.,
