More than Campaign Footnotes

March 1976
National Review;3/5/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 7, p200
The article examines two minor candidates for the 1976 primaries in the U.S., Wallace Johnson and Ellen McCormack. Johnson is running for the position of vice president in the New Hampshire primary. He was the mayor of Berkeley, California from 1963 to 1971 and is also a successful businessman. Johnson filed a taxpayer's suit challenging a postal employee safety bill containing a provision that protects congressmen and other federal officials against the effects of inflation. McCormack is running in the New Hampshire and Vermont primaries as the right-to-life candidate for the presidency. Arguments have been raised against the provision of public funds for so-called single issue candidates like McCormack.
