Below you will be able to read few information about the Today Clue Solution:

He was an American lawyer, prosecutor, and politician. He served as the 47th Governor of New York from 1943 to 1954. In 1944, he was the Republican Party’s nominee for President. He lost the 1944 election to President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the closest of Roosevelt’s four presidential elections. He was again the Republican presidential nominee in 1948, but lost to President Harry S. Truman in one of the greatest upsets in presidential election history.[1] Dewey played a large role in winning the Republican presidential nomination for Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952, and helped Eisenhower win the presidential election that year. He also played a large part in the choice of Richard M. Nixon as the Republican vice-presidential nominee in 1952 and 1956.

In New York, Dewey had awakened at 10:30 A.M. to discover that Truman had taken Ohio as well as Illinois and California. He conferred with his aides, and at 11:14 A.M.-four minutes after McGrath had issued a victory statement-he had a telegram on the wires to Truman: “My heartiest congratulations to you on your election and every good wish for a successful administration. I urge all Americans to unite behind you in support of every effort to keep our nation strong and free and establish peace in the world.”

At 1 P.M., Dewey met the press. He looked weary, but he managed an occasional smile and his voice had lost none of its resonance. “Anything I can tell anybody here that they don’t already know?” he asked.

“What happened, Governor?”

“I was just as surprised as you are,” he said, “and I gather that is shared by everybody in the room, as I read your stories before the election.” He did not believe that there had been any error of strategy or tactics—“We waged a clean and constructive campaign and I have no regrets whatsoever.” Further postmortems would have to await a closer study of the election returns. Would he consider running a third time? “No,” said Dewey. And a moment later, “It has been grand fun, boys and girls. I enjoyed it immensely.”

The answer for: On November 3, 1948 he sent a congratulatory telegram, then told reporters, “I was just as surprised as you” is as following:
