William Colmer (D-Miss) who said in a tatement that if i few states withheld votes from both major candidates, a close election would e thrown into the House, where ach state gets one vole. This, he said, would put them "in the envi»b!e position of being courted rather than taken for granted." Colmer strongly endorsed Barnett's national convention stand. . The governor, head of the sate delegation, declined to go along with the rest of the South in support of Sen. Lyndon Johnson of Texas for President. Most of the congressional delegation, includ ing Sens. James Eastland and John Slcnnis, wanted Johnson. The congressional delegation has had little to say since the convention. JACKSON (UPf) - Gov. Ross Barnetl denied Sunday he told Slato Sen. Flavous Lambert that he expected Mississippi's entire congressional delegation to bolt the Democratic Party this year. "1 certainly cannot speak for the senators and congressmen" the Governor said. "1 can only speak for Ross Barnelt."
