John Hamilton Cade, Jr. (July 9, 1928 – January 8, 1988), was an Alexandria businessman and a pioneer in the development of the modern American Republican Party in Louisiana. Though he never held elected office himself, Cade was the GOP national committeeman and thereafter the Louisiana party chairman from 1976–1978. He was the campaign manager on several occasions for his close friend, David C. Treen, the first Louisiana Republican since Reconstruction to win election to the United States House of Representatives (1972) and thereafter to the governorship (1979).
Cade was born in Monroe to John Hamilton Cade, Sr. (1894–1981), and the former Carrie Flournoy (1895–1982). He and his father were owners of the former Alexandria Feed and Seed Co., which the senior Cade established in 1933. Cade married the former Marie Howell (November 26, 1932 – September 17, 2006); they had two children.
==Early Republican campaigns==
In 1964, he was a delegate to the Republican National Convention which met in San Francisco to nominate Barry M. Goldwater for president. It was at the Cow Palace conclave that he first met David Treen, a fellow Louisiana delegate.
In 1966, Cade was a Republican candidate for a then at-large seat on the Rapides Parish School Board. The entire GOP slate was defeated. Two years later, Cade ran unsuccessfully for the Rapides Parish Police Jury (equivalent of county commission in other states). Cade said that he never expected to be elected to local office: "I realized that I could do my best work behind the scenes."
Cade managed Treen's House races in the Third Congressional District in 1972, 1974, 1976, and 1978. The campaigns were herculean tasks at the time; the 1972 Treen victory being the first Republican breakthrough in modern Louisiana history, and the 1974 race mired in the political fallout from Watergate.
