    I'll post Eisenhower's term tomorrow and hopefully the beginning of the 1956 election. Wait till y'all see who's the VP and SOS in this admin. Also thoughts on anything so far? I'll hopefully flesh the primaries out more in the 80's and beyond, but when most of the states vote at the convention there's no point.

Long signs deal pledging 10 billion dollars in aid to South Korean forces and as well as 35,000 more troops. January 19th, 1953 - Pres.

Taft speaks with North and South Korean leaders in a phone call that lasts 30 minutes with the promise of peace. February 2nd, 1953 - Gen. MacArthur fired after insulting Taft for “taking the Communist menace lightly”. February 11th, 1953 - Pres. Taft refuses clemency to the Rosenbergs. March 5th, 1953 - USSR leader Joseph Stalin dead. March 16th, 1953 - VP Eisenhower visits South Korea to meet with the Chinese and the North Koreans. April 4th, 1953 - HUAC releases a memo saying Pres. Taft subject to Communist influences, soft on the “red menace”. May 11th, 1953 - Huge tornado in the Waco area, President survey damage next day. June 2nd, 1953 - Queen Elizabeth coronated as queen with VP Eisenhower in attendance. June 19th, 1953 - Execution of the Rosenbergs. Presidents Long, and Taft as well as VP Connolly, and Sen. McCarthy in attendance. June 30th, 1953 - Korean war ends. July 12th, 1953 - Pres. Taft’s last public appearance in the House chamber requesting funds to help integrate military personal back into the public. July 31st, 1953 - Pres. Taft dies from cancer, Eisenhower becomes president less than 2 hours later. Analysis: President Taft led a very event filled 7 months in office. He ended the Korean war, had no real trouble domestically, except the strong anti communist people who accused him of being weak on communism. He will likely be known as the peace president.

    It’s called at 11:46 Michigan, Wisconsin, and Missouri have all been called for the Senator bringing his total over the 266 needed, it seems that the final results are 287 to 243. That was a good hard fought election against both candidates. I do want to say that it has been an honour being a speaker for this station for over 50 some odd years, but it is time for me to retire, my colleague will be taking over. So goodbye for the last time.

    11:30 and Stevenson just lost his lead to Taft in New York, but has had a few more states called for him, the bad news? Taft just gained about 10 more states in his column bringing the total to 230 for Taft to 191 for Stevenson.

    11:00 and Stevenson has taken the lead in called states; 162 to 142. Virginia and North Carolina has fallen into his category as well as a couple other Southern states. If Taft can hole all the states he currently leads in then he should win, but it is unlikely as they’re still flipping.

    10:15 and the Governor has gotten good news. He leads in every uncalled state except 5. Sen. Taft has gotten a few more states called in the West, but no big electoral ones, yet.

    9:30 and Stevenson still behind Taft, but closer. 128 to 120. So far only Southern states have been called for the Governor, but Taft has claimed a few western states just moments ago. The Senator’s lead in Virginia is down to 300 votes. But he is holding steady in all Midwestern states but Michigan. Can the Governor break the red wall?

    Well it just struck 9 and now Sen. Taft has taken the lead. 113 to 110, very close. Stevenson has added Tennessee and Arkansas while the Senator has added a few North Eastern states, but the biggest so far is Ohio and Indiana striking a blow to the Governor.

    It’s now 8:15 and a lot of new states have come in. Sen. Taft has had Illinois, and Indiana finally called for him. Gov. Stevenson has now added Texas, Mississippi, and Alabama to his column bringing his total to 91 to 43. Can the Senator recover?

    It’s now 7:30 and Gov. Stevenson has had some great results come in, he now has Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida locked in bringing his total up to 40, while Sen. Taft has only Vermont giving him 3 electoral votes. He does still lead in Indiana and now in Virginia, but can those leads hold?

    Nov. 4th, 1952 Welcome back to PI Radio!Tonight’s the night and were really excited to see how this lays out. It’s 6:30 and so far only Kentucky has been called for the Governor. Giving him 10 electoral votes. The Senator does lead in Indiana but it is expected to flip back and forth all night.

    Nov. 3rd, 1952 Welcome back to PI Radio! Tomorrow is the election and it’s still a nail biter. No one knows for sure who will win. Sen. Taft is ahead in key states, but by less than 3 points in each, while the Governor is still leading general polls by 3 points. One can say for sure that there will not be a third party ruining this election this time. I will see y’all tomorrow for the election and bring caffeine because once again it will be a late night.

    October 6th, 1952 Welcome back to PI Radio! Gov. Stevenson in new polls released has caught up to the Senator in electoral votes and still leads by 3 points overall. The Senator and Governor have been campaigning extensively in New York making that once again a key battleground state. Who will New York eventually go to? We will see in 29 days.

    Sep. 8th, 1952 Welcome back to PI Radio! New polls out show the Senator down 5 points but up in key states that can give him the election. Gov. Stevenson has been campaigning hard in New York seemingly taking it out of the Huey Long playbook, but even without New York Sen. Taft still has enough electoral votes.Gov. Stevenson has the South on complete lockdown, but that alone won’t give him the election. With 57 days left who knows what will happen?

    Jul. 26th, 1952 Welcome back to PI Radio! Today the DNC decided who will be the nominee. Strom Thurmond was the first one to drop out because of his abysmal results out of South Carolina. He endorsed Sen. Kefauver. After another ballot Sen. Kefauver dropped out and endorsed Gov. Stevenson giving him enough delegates. Stevenson chose Sen. Barkley as his running mate. The polls at the beginning of the general have the Governor up 4 points, can the Senator recover and finally have the Republicans in the White House after 28 years? With 100 days left who knows?
