- Vice President Warren Fitzgerald Keaton (D-OK), former four-star general and Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in Europe; according to Allen he "won a war" without any casualties and is an "economics genius"; was Governor Jack Crawford's running-mate on the Democratic ticket that lost to Bridges/Allen; resigns after a year in office due to wife's ovarian cancer.

Republican Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Joe Peck tried to derail Brantley's nomination at Templeton's behest; despite liking Brantley, Templeton wanted to use the nomination to hurt Allen, whom he planned to challenge in the presidential election and Peck, facing a difficult reelection campaign, could not afford to alienate the Republican Party, until Allen offered to appoint his opponent as her Treasury Secretary.
