Eating Crow in California

Coyne Jr., John R.
July 1976
National Review;7/9/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 25, p724
The article discusses the presidential race in the U.S. in 1976. Despite Ronald Reagan's unprecedented showing in New Hampshire, it appeared to be holding true. Incumbent President Gerald Ford took Florida and then Illinois by ever-widening margins. After Illinois, many began to take Jimmy Carter seriously. Carter has acquired the Democratic Party's presidential nomination. His campaign in California was low-keyed, primarily a race against Frank Church for second place. In the meantime, the Ford campaign seems to flip-flop from week to week.
