GOP Fears
By The Associated PrOn
For the first time, Republi-
cans charged with re-electing
the President are viewing the
potential candidacy of Sen.
George McGovern (D - S.D.)
with genuine concern.
Until the California primary
most staff members on the
Committee for the Re-election
of the President were hoping
McGovern would be the nomi-
nee because they were sure he
could be beaten handily, accord-
ing to Republican po-
litical sources.
But now the South Dakota
senator is viewed by political
pros, including campaign dir-
ector John Mitchell, as a man
whose string of primary vic-
tories make him an opponent to
be reckoned with.
Compounding this and more
frightful to a Republican suc-
cess, say the sources, is the
possibility of Sen. Edward
Kennedy (D-Mass.) joining the
McGovern ticket as a vice pres-
idential candidate.
Recently, they say, Kennedy
has been dropped from Repub-
lican - financed polls taken on
potential opponents to Nixon.
But since Kennedy said in a
newspaper interview he would-
n't completely exclude the pos-
sibility of accepting the vice
presidential nomination, his
name will probably be added to
the surveys, the sources said.
In a -meeting with the cam-
paign staff this week, Mitchell,
the former attorney general,
used tough language in outlin-
ing the beginning of the Re-
publican election campaign.
Ironically, Mitchell ordered
heavy emphasis on grass-roots
political organization, the for-
mula most political analysts
ar reis thekey McGovern's
success so far in collecting over
two-thirds of the delegate votes
needed to lock up the Demo-
cratic presidential .nomination.
