November 1977
National Review;11/11/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 44, p1276
The article reports on developments in world politics. The Cargo Preference Bill has been reversed in the U.S. House and the credit for its reversal goes to liberal Republican Pete McCloskey and conservative Bob Bauman. In the Virginia gubernatorial race, Republican John Dalton is now leading Democrat Henry Howell, with 17 percent still undecided. French public opinion polls show that nearly half the Socialists there hope French presidential candidate Francois Mitterrand's Socialist Party will look to the Center, not the Communists for allies in the parliamentary elections to be held in 1978.
