So a lack of knowledge means I'm not welcome here? I've always wondered why there's a lack of Republicans on this forum and now I'm beginning to see why.

Reagan thanks supporters for their hard work in Minnesota.

Together we will build a better America. With tax cuts and economic freedom we will create millions of jobs and save others. We will curb inflation with cuts in our government. We will reform Social Security and we will make sure that our senior citizens who have served this country will not be abandoned. We will make a better America.

Reagan then made campaigns stops in Minnesota before traveling New Hampshire. Reagan's major endorsers and campaign staff have set up campaign around Minnesota while Reagan campaigns hard in New Hampshire.

It was only three weeks until the Minnesota Caucuses and New Hampshire Primary.  Both seemed to be good ground for Richardson to fight on.  In the National polls, Stassen had led in two, while Ford in one.  Stassen was not much of a factor and Ford had been hurt.

Richardson had pulled enough votes from Ford in Wyoming to deliver a third loss to the current President.  The Minnesota Party leaders would not back him now.  Just one year before, the Minnesota Republican Party had become the Independant-Republicans after moderate leadership had taken over and wanted to distance itself from the Goldwater wing.  Richardson increased his time in the state.  He would spend one week of the remaining three in Gopher State campaigning with Minnesota Representatives Bill Frenzel and Al Quie, both moderates.  They accentuated Richardson's long experience, consitent support of civil rights, and plan to reform and streamline government.

Richardson would then campaign in New Hampshire, where he had led since the beginning.  There were strong conservatives currents in the state.  Richardson was worried that Ford might pull enough votes to swing it to Reagan.  He campaigned hard with Henry Cabot Lodge, the winner in 1964.  Also joining him were his former number 2 at the Justice Department.  Together the two hoped to remind the voters of New Hampshire that they had resigned rather than follow Nixon's unlawful order.

It would a long three weeks.

Governor George Wallace in Norman, Oklahoma...

Thank you, great people of Oklahoma for voting for me today! Americans from across the country are rallying faster than every behind me, and this is great, because I honestly believe my moderate and practical solutions for this country will be better than anything my opponents have to offer. Let's move on to Alaska and Minnesota and win there!

Reagan makes last minute pitch in New Hampshire as his staffers, endorsements and campaign volunteers travel all over Minnesota to get out the vote.

We're going to create millions of jobs with two words...tax. cuts. That means we're going to need to reduce spending, but it's what we must do in order to insure a bright American future so our children don't have to have a massive dept on their backs because of us. This is for the children yet to be born.

Reagan thanks supporters for their hard work and heads to Washington to campaign.

You bet we going to win this. With all the hard work of supporters, volunteers and donors, we are going to win the White House and turn around this country.

Reagan announces his campaign focus will be on Washington, Massachusetts, Florida and South Carolina (for the first part of the month).
