Democratic Party Pledges to Keep Prejudice out of Campaign

Download PDF for this date

The Democratic Party “will not inject racial prejudice or religious bigotry” into the Presidential campaign, Frank E. McKinney, Democratic National Chairman, pledged today.

In a reply to an appeal this week-end by six Jewish, Catholic and Protestant leaders to both major political parties to keep the election campaign free of race prejudice and religious bigotry, Mr. McKinney stated: “The Democratic Party will not condone any such activity in behalf of any of its candidates. It will vigorously condemn and disavow any such activity should it develop.”
