ABSTRACT
The article discusses the visit of Senator John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts to Wisconsin. The purpose of the visit was to speak at the Democratic party's fund raising dinner. Kennedy did a lot of campaigning in the 30 hours he was in Wisconsin. To begin with, the Wisconsin Democrats were not totally friendly to Kennedy. Some farmers recalled that he once voted against high rigid price supports and some union officers considered him anti-labor. Kennedy sought to remedy this impression by insisting repeatedly that he was a real liberal. At the regular party dinner, Kennedy's speech was ordinary fare. But when it was over, there were many whose mild hostility had evaporated, and there were new enthusiasts.
