WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 10, 1952 'Victory Is Endorsement of My Drive Against Communists/ McCarthy Says »>• DO.V U'filTEHEAD MILWAUKEE I*—Jubilant Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy was the landslide winner today of Wisconsin's COP senatorial nomination. He called his victory an endorsement by the people of "my campaign to rid the government of subversive I forces that would destroy it." He promised his "all-out sup- Port" to Republican presidential nominee Dwight D.' Eisenhower and pledged to the voters he would continue his Communists-in-gov- efnment charges, which some people regard as the act of a patriot and others see as srnear tactics. But there was no truce between McCarthy and Lcn Schmitt — the man he defeated in yesterday's primary election for the senatorial nomination. Schmitt charged McCarthy had won through "an amazing and fraudulent hoax" perpetrated on the voters, and he added: "The result of this election Is an appalling thing. . . . When the full truth dawns, many people will recall their support of Joseph R, McCarthy in this election with shame." The 42-year-old senator, peeking his second term, brushed this at- to\ rid the government of subver- islvo forces that would destroy it." With 2,379 precincts out of 3,224 reported, the count was: McCarthy 332.883 Schmitt 130T-130 Four other GOP senatorial candidates ran far behind. McCarthy's victory will pit him In the November election against either Thomas Fairchild of Verona or Henry Reuss of Milwaukee, the candidates for the Democratic senatorial nomination. Fairchild held a substantial lead over Reuss enrly today, but returns from Milwaukee County were chipping away at the margin and the outcome was uncertain. McCarthy's spectacular victory indicated that perhaps he had some support from switch-voting Democrats who'-crosscd the line to give him help. Cross-voting Is legal In Wisconsin, where voters are not required to registered by party affiliation. v But this was only speculation and there was no way to check H. The pre-election guess had been that any such cross-voting would help Schmiit — and this was one of the concerns in the McCarthy camp. However, the senator outstripped both Democratic ctindi- | dates and his five Republican rl- • vals by more than 100,000 votes. Only a third of the state's precincts had been . reported when Schmitt threw In the towel at 10:55 p.m. with this bitter statement: "The result of this election is an appalling thing. The effect upon me personally is utterly unimportant. I did not enter this campaign because I sought or needed a job. "What is important is that a man with the most corrupt record ever made by a Wisconsin senator is overwhelmingly endorsed by Wisconsin voters. "The most amazing and fraudulent hoax ever practiced by a high public figiire upon the voters of any state is approved by the people of a state which once insisted upon the highest standards of integrity, honesty and decency in public life. "I remain secure tn the knowledge that I was right in this fight. I am proud of the part I played and I am deeply grateful to my .many friends for the help and as"• slstance they gave me. when the full truth dawns on many people they will recall their support of Joseph R. McCarthy In this election with shame." Th8 senator at tha half-way count was ahead tn all but two of tha state's 11 counties. He also was leading almost 2 to I in densely populated Milwaukee County, where Schmitt had been expected to have his greatest strcngth- The senator received the news o! his victory at the home of a friend in his home town of-Appleton. He was asked if he thought the election was an answer to his critics. "Nothing wl" over answer my critics," he replied. McCartfiy went oil to say he intended to support Eisenhower and his running mate. Sen, Richard Nixon," because it would be a catastrophe for this nation if a mnn like Stevenson were elected president." "We can't have n linuscrlcnn- ing." he added, "unless we- have a change. I intend to fight corruption and communism and to expose the foreign policy that has been so had for America and so good for Communist Russia." Other Wisconsin primary con- (csts saw all incumbent congressmen — eight Republicans and one Democrat — apparently winning renominalion. In the Seventh District. State Sen. Mclvin R. Laird of M.irshfipld won the GOP nomination to succeed the late Rep Reed Murray iRi O f Ogdensburg. On the gubernatorial front. Qov. Waller Kohler was nominated by the Republicans and William Prox- mlre was chosen by the Democrats. Both were unopposed. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)
