Description
Keynote Speaker: U.S. Senator Pat Harrison MS

The first 15 ballots were taken on 6/30/1924. McAdoo's strategy was to place first, with several of his supporters voting for favorite sons initially. One of his supporters said that he would reach the 50% point on the 5th ballot, at which time he would move quickly to the requisite 66.7%. McAdoo placed first on the first ballot with 39.3% to 22.9% for Smith. In third place, far behind the leaders, was Cox with 5.4%. A fight broke out in the Missouri delegation on the second ballot when a supporter of Sen. Reed, tired of his vote being erased by the state's unit rule, accused McAdoo of trying to bribe delegates. On following ballots, McAdoo and Smith gained gradually. McAdoo failed to reach 50% on the 5th ballot, at which time he had only 40.3%. Ferris's delegates switched to Smith on the 8th, and after the 9th the convention took a recess. It was thought that McAdoo's forces would move sharply upward when the delegates re-convened, but it did not materialize. Kansas switched to McAdoo, but Silzer's New Jersey delegation switched to Smith. Louisiana, which had switched from Robinson to Glass, switched to McAdoo. The convention adjourned for the night after the 15th ballot. At that time, Smith had gained 64.5 to McAdoo's 47.5. John W. Davis, who was already being talked of as a compromise candidate, was third with 61 - one more than Cox.
