July 1979
New Republic;7/7/79, Vol. 181 Issue 1/2, p12
The article reports that the Americans for Democratic Action convention held on June 23, 1979. During the convention, the organization resolved to deny Senator Jimmy Earl Carter's renomination and create an irresistible national mandate for Senator Edward Kennedy to seek the presidency in the U.S. The organization's resolution describes Carter's record as one of broken promises, abandoned principles, and a thoroughgoing desertion of the 1976 platform.
