Next in line, he said, is Governor Landon of Kansas. Speaking- of Borah, McKaig said: "The senator from Idaho has two characteristics: One like a prophet of Israel denouncing the sins of king and people alike; the other a desire to build for future generations." Of his political career, McKaig declared, "his record is a combination of aye and nay. Destructionist ? Yes. to those who Would loot thp treasury and spread the power of bureaucracy; constructionist for those who love our constitution and its guarantees, and who would preserve our unhampered rights and local home governments."
