ABSTRACT
The article considers the direction that will be taken by the Republican Party in 1976, represented by stalwarts U.S. President Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and John Connally. That direction will be clarified as the three Republicans and other delegates troop to Kansas City for the Republican National Convention. What could be expected from Ford, Reagan and Connally. Ford represents the older Republican Party of the post-Civil War. Its electoral bastions lay in the northeast and the midwest. Reagan represents a conservative movement that took up as themes strong defense, resistance to communism abroad, limited government at home and rejection of moral permissiveness. Connally represents the nationalists, progressives and social conservatives.
