Capital Bulletin

September 1976
National Review Bulletin;9/10/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 34, pB132
The article reports on several political developments in the United States prior to the presidential elections. Republicans foresee a serious leadership vacuum by 1980, as neither President Gerald R. Ford, because of constitutional limitations, nor Ronald Reagan, because of age, will be running for President. Among the handful of potential presidential possibilities currently under discussion are Howard Baker and, James Buckley. Supporters of Jimmy Carter are confident about his victory in the elections. Most important legislation and decisions on funding have been deferred until a new President settles in and the new Congress takes its seats.
