Winners & Losers

September 1978
National Review;9/29/1978, Vol. 30 Issue 39, p1194
This article presents information on the political conditions in the U.S. It is reported that Representative Ronald Sarasin, who is campaigning against a state income tax, is by no means a conservative, but his rating is the highest of any member of Connecticut's congressional delegation. It is pointed that Maryland Democrats turned their backs on Acting Governor Blair Lee, upsetting pollsters and political commentators alike. It is further stated that in Florida, it was a popular win for former Senator Edward Gurney over politician Frank Daley for the congressional seat he first won 16 years ago. Gurney opted not to run again during the Watergate era when he was accused of misuse of political funds, a charge he beat in the courts but too late to salvage his Senate seat.
