Barry Goldwater as the GOP presidential nominee would result in a Republican landslide in 1964. Hayes Robertson, Cook County Republican chairman, boosted Goldwater at a fund-raising picnic sponsored by supporters of the Arizona senator. "But it will not be easy to get him nominated," Robertson said.

Robertson, who is campaigning for the Illinois Republican nomination for governor, said the man nominated for governor "is going to be without any question the leader of Illinois' delegation to next year's convention. "It will depend largely upon him as to whether or not Illinois will be in the Goldwater draft movement to insure his nomination," he said.
