GOP Urges Nixon to Run for Governor of California

Aug. 30, 1961 - National Republican leaders overwhelmingly urged former Vice President Richard M. Nixon today to run against Governor Edmund G. Brown (pictured with President Kennedy) of California next year. Mr. Nixon and party leaders from in and outside Congress agreed at a private breakfast in Washington this morning that the party must build strength in the 1962 elections. But the main topic was the possibility of Mr. Nixon's run against Brown, a Democrat, in California.
