Robert Amory, Jr. '36, professor of Law, yesterday announced his candidacy as an independent delegate from the Eleventh Congressional District to the Republican national convention in July. His running mate in the April primaries will be Charles S. Bolster, a Boston attorney.
Although two people from this district have already announced their candidacy as Taft delegates. Amory and Bolster have no; pledged themselves outright to any candidate.
In a statement, they stated: "While we believe that General Eisenhower would make the strongest Republican candidate and an excellent president, we are not pledging ourselves to the candidacy of any particular individual for two reasons. 1) It will be impossible until well after April 29 to tell what situations may confront the convention; and 2) the people are to be given opportunity this year to express their preferences at the presidential primaries, and such preferences should be given thoughtful consideration by every delegate."
"We propose to support that person who is well qualified and more certain to win in November. A Republican victory this year is of the utmost importance to our country," the statement concluded.
