Nixon: No Plans to Run for Office Ever Again

Mar. 7, 1963 - Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon said today he had no plans to be a candidate for public office but offered to “work hard” for the 1964 Republican Presidential nominee. Mr. Nixon listed four “top runners” who he said led all others for the nomination. They were Senator Barry Goldwater, and Governors Nelson Rockefeller, George Romney, and William Scranton. Mr. Nixon, in Chicago for conferences related to his California law practice, held a news conference at the Sheraton-Blackstone Hotel. He surveyed the room and said, “It seems that I have been here before.” He had stopped in the suite many times during his tenure as Vice President.
