This is the eleventh chapter of Right Face.

From the beginning of the chapter:
Barry Goldwater entered his campaign for the highest office as the candidate of a party that was in a state of civil war. To an ardent supporter such as Representative Bob Dole of Kansas, Goldwater's victory had anchored the party after years adrift. He rejoiced in the fact that it was now possible to "go out and make speeches for spending cuts and sound conservative principles, certain that we won't be undercut by the leaders of our party". On the other hand, many liberal Republicans maintained that the conservatives, who according to Henry Cabot Lodge simply did not understand the modern world, had hijacked the party. In consequence, several of these liberals found open defection acceptable, if not even imperative under the circumstances. Among them were Governor George Romney of Michigan, Senator Case of New Jersey, Senators Keating and Javits, Representative John Lindsay of New York, and former presidential candidates Harold Stassen and Thomas Dewey, who all openly endorsed Lyndon B. Johnson. Other Republican senators simply avoided active support for Goldwater and did their best to detach their own reelection-campaigns from his bid for the presidency. Any association with his candidacy, they feared, could be a political kiss of death. The Herald Tribune endorsed a democratic presidential candidate for the first time ever and more than eighty officials from the Eisenhower-administrations signed an open attack on Goldwater.
