New York Senate Race

July 1976
National Review;7/9/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 25, p720
The article looks at the Senate race in New York in 1976. The author states that Ramsey Clark, Paul O'Dwyer, and Bella Abzug have been put on the primary ballot by vote of the Democratic State Committee. In the meantime, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, who also received a place on the ballot, stands out sharply. His candidacy possesses a good deal of analytical interest. The emergence of presidential hopeful Jimmy Carter, however, makes a Moynihan candidacy viable. In the primary as well, things seem to be falling into place for Moynihan.
