Sept. 12, 1961 - Richard M. Nixon today warned the growing field of Republican gubernatorial entries in California to focus their primary campaign ammunition on the Democrats rather than each other. The former Vice President, at a news conference in Denver, insisted that he still had not made up his mind about running against Gov. Edmund G. Brown for a four-year term. He said he would announce the decision in Los Angeles "within ten days." His decision is expected to have considerable bearing on the shape of the 1964 national campaign. Mr. Nixon denied a recent published report that his wife wanted him to get out of politics. He said today he did not intend to leave the political field.
