Kennedy to Campaign in '62

Nov. 10, 1961 - President Kennedy will take to the road in the 1962 Congressional campaign to the exent that international problems permit. Sources close to the President said today there were two main reasons for his decision:

Without a hard fight, the President feels the Democratic majority in the House of Representatives might be cut even further, or turned into a minority, with possibly disastrous effect on his legislative program and a serious impact on the 1964 Presidential election.

He misses the personal contact and morale uplift that he enjoys in campaigning. His recent trips into New York and New Jersey campaign territories gave him a lift, and the election results did nothing to hurt his confidence.
