Thomas Edmund Dewey (March 24, 1902 – March 16, 1971) was the 47th
Governor of New York (1943 – 1954). In 1944 and 1948, he was the
Republican candidate for President, but lost both times. He led the
liberal faction of the Republican Party, in which he fought
conservative Ohio Senator Robert A. Taft. Dewey advocated for the
professional and business community of the Northeastern United States,
which would later be called the "Eastern Establishment." This
organization accepted the majority of New Deal social-welfare reforms
enacted after 1944. It consisted of internationalists who were in
favor of the United Nations and the "Cold War" fought against
communism and the Soviet Union. In addition, he played a large part in
the election of Dwight D. Eisenhower as President in 1952. Dewey's
successor as leader of the liberal Republicans was Nelson Rockefeller,
who became governor of New York in 1959. The New York State Thruway is
named in Dewey's honor.dsfkdjs;fkljsadklf;jsadkl;fjsadkfjads
