The Conservative Mainstream

Evans, M. Stanton
October 1980
National Review;10/31/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 22, p1326
The article focuses on the twentieth anniversary of the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF), which was held at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. in September 1980. Suggesting the continuous operations of YAF, a number of speakers attended the anniversary celebration. The event was attended by several political activists and spokesmen. The sizeable turnout of these political leaders and activists indicates the confidence and aggressiveness of the new conservatives. Furthermore, almost all the conservative organizations in Washington and around the U.S. were present.
