Reason: Hoeveft's voting record is pretty much "pro-Benson", and most farm groups consider it poor. If I remember right, Hoeven's Democratic opponent in i960 took a strong stand against farm supports, sort of a "Benson boy" too. There was no enthusiasm for him among laboring men or farmers. tf the Democrats fail to get a good candidate (hard hitting) against Hickenlooper and Hoeven it Will be a mistake. Hickenlooper and Miller were the only two senators from this entire corn belt who voted against the popular Feed Grain Bill in 1961. Farmers generally did not realize Hickenlooper and Miller were so "anti- farm." V Geo. W.
