1952 Republican National Convention

1952 Republican National Convention

The 1952 Republican National Convention was held at the International Amphitheatre in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois from July 7 to July 11, 1952 and nominated the popular general and war hero Dwight D. Eisenhower of Kansas, also known as "Ike," for president and the anti-communist crusading Senator from California, Richard Milhous Nixon, for vice president.

The Republican platform pledged to end the unpopular war in Korea, to fire all "the loafers, incompetents and unnecessary employees" at the State Department, condemned the Roosevelt and Truman administrations' economic policies, supported retention of the Taft-Hartley Act, and pledged to bring an end to ´"Communist Subversion" in the United States.
