They were considering two lawyers who were partners in Galusha's firm, but could not decide on which of the two to back. So they gave up and selected Galusha. He ran against Andrew Johnson, and of course, Johnson was Lincoln's VP. So, relatices of Galusha Grow were close to being related to the President of the US. Senator from PA, Speaker of the House.
