Mar. 4, 1963 - Governor George Romney of Michigan said today “I’m not going to become a candidate” for the 1964 Republican Presidential nomination. He made the statement before presenting, as head of a Michigan delegation, Detroit’s bid for the 1964 Republican National Convention to the party’s site committee. His statement strengthened the commanding lead of New York’s Governor Rockefeller for the nomination. Similar statements have been made recently by Governor William W. Scranton of Pennsylvania and Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona. They have been mentioned prominently for the nomination to oppose President Kennedy in 1964.
