Touring State After a swing through the southern part of Arizona during which he talked with numerous new residents, including veterans, Bruce j Brockett, of Rimrock, Republican candidate for governor, declared he found a very definite desire by these people for a change in state administration, Brockett visited Tucson Tuesday night and Wednesday morning with Bill Bourdon, state GOP chairman, on an organizational tour. Brockett delivered his weekly radio broadcast over the Arizona network from KVQA at 6:15 p. m. They-lntend to return to the southern part of the state in the near future, Appeals To Newcomers Elaborating on his estimate of voters' attitudes, Brockett said many of the new residents as well as a.heavy proportion of the older residents in the southern part of the state expressed their dislike of the New Deal tactics used by Gov. Sidney P. Osborn, his opponent. "They expressed resentment," Brockett reported, "in Gov. Osborn taking the attitude of an indulgent parent toward a child. They believe themselves perfectly capable of making their own decisions on state problems and certainly resent the indulgent parental ' attitude that has prevented full information from being disseminated about im portant state matters." Foster Son Of Senator Brockett is a cattle rancher at Rimrock, which is about 70 miles southeast of Prescott. He has lived there since 192, coming originally from Montana. His foster-father was the late Sen. John B. Kendrick, who was active in sponsoring legislation of benefit to the West before Western states obtained statehood. Bruce Brockett, Republican candidate for governor, said dor* ing a visit to Tucson he has found much sentiment in southern Arizona for a change in the state administration. (Photo by Reggie Russell.)
