Nixon Undecided on Running for Governor of California

Aug. 26, 1961 - Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon is still wavering on the question of running against California Governor Edmund G. Brown next year. Republican Party leaders are looking to him as the surest candidate in a tight race, with registered Democrats outnumbering Republicans by more than 1 million. Conflicting with this is Mr. Nixon's desire to avoid executive responsibilities that could hamper his activities in connection with a possible run against President Kennedy in 1964. His decision has been promised for Sept. 23, when the party's high command will meet in San Francisco.
