Though Chairman James A.

If G. O. P victories had not been general in the nation.. f the Now Deal issife could not be .picked out as a determining- factor in the Derifocratic defeat, but from \Maine to Cali fornia,\ almost literally, with soriie exceptions, of course, there was a general repudiation of Democratic candidates, which, if fairly recognized, can but be attributed to voter objection to the New Deal. The list of Republican victories starts with a clean sweep in Pennsylvania where Sen. James J. Davis defeated Gov. George Earle by a 300,000 vote margin and Republican JudyD Arthur James defeated Democrat Charles A.
