Allan Shivers

Allan Shivers and Eisenhower

Governor Shivers was nationally known for his break with the Democratic party over the Tidelands issue. Shivers endorsed Dwight Eisenhower's candidacy in 1952 and was instrumental in delivering Texas' electoral votes to the Republicans. A few months after taking office, Ike signed into law congressional approval the state's claim to the Tidelands.
