Kilpatrick, James Jackson
September 1976
National Review;9/17/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 35, p999
The article comments on issues related to the 1976 presidential elections in the U.S. U.S. President Gerald Ford announced his presidential candidacy in July 1975, while presidential candidate Ronald Reagan announced his decision to run in November 1975. The statement of Reagan with regard to his candidacy was treated by the Washington press corps with disdain. Although Reagan served as governor of California for two terms and acquired a certain reputation as a conservative spellbinder, people could not eliminate the fact that he was a movie actor.
