2i%;-- June 2. 1974 Sunda Gazette-Mail vest Virginia- PRIMARIES I One of Longest Campaigns to End ; When Californians Vote Tuesday : By Bill Stall -" - The .·tssoriatvd /Vess One of the longest primary campaigns in California history-ends Tuesday when Repub- liljans and Democrats choose candidates to succeed Ronald Reagan as governor. Seven other states also hold primaries.. Campaigning by some California candidates began as lojig as five years ago. But a recent t u r n i n g point was a perjury indictment by the Watergate grand jury that crip pled the campaign of frontrun- nipg Republican Lt. Gov. Ed Reinecke. The latest polls show the strong favorites to be Democrat Edmund G. Brown Jr.. 36-year-old secretary of state arid son of the former governor, and Republican Houston I.'Flournoy, 44. the state controller and a former college professor. '* ~- * * * THE OTHER states holding primaries Tuesday include: »-Ibwa: Two Republicans are'contending for the right to face an unopposed Democrat , for the Senate seat vacated by D e m o c r a t i c Sen. H a r o l d Hugbe"Jt "Who quit the Senate tcfrSecome a religous lay lead- er!-·' VSouth Dakota: A former prisoner of war. a businessman and woman active in Republican politics are contending "for the chance to oppose the' re-election bid of Sen. i George McGovern, the 1972 ' Democratic presidential nom- ifree. And Democratic Gov. Richard Kneip faces primary | opposition from a former ally. =New Mexico: Six Democrats and four Republicans are seeking nomination for governor. ·"^·Mississippi: There are Emir contests for nomination irbthree of the state's congressional districts. *·'»· Montana: The State's two congressmen, a Republican 4nd a Democrat, are unop- pQsed for renomination. But Qrere are contests in each dis- tact for the right to oppose fJrem. x»-New Jersey: There are 69 candidates running in the 15 jjongressional districts, a de- vjlopment Democrats believe Jesuits from the fact that Watergate makes no Republican .safe. -Alabama: Two candidates ire running for the Democratic^ nomination for lieutenant iggvernor after failing to get a jbajority in the first primary. ^. j *.. * * * IN CALIFORNIA, political .-reform is a major issue, but 'the leading gubernatorial can- -dKlates still spent more than !$J million each seeking nomi- :tations in President Nixon's Jipme state. *lI-Brown's chief challengers -_ajmong 18 Democrats are state ^Assembly Speaker Bob Moret%", 37, and Joseph L. Alioto, 1'jthe flamboyant mayor of San ' -Erancisco whose wife Angeli- ji-a went underground for 18 -3ays to protest her husband's jmmersion in politics and lack ^of attention to her. ~~I Sen. Alan Cranston, D-Cal;*Tf., faced only token opposi- 'Vgon for renomination to a sec- ^-ojid term. Cranston is an early ·favorite to win re-election Reiver any of the five lesser- ·-Iftnown GOP challengers. J The campaign for governor ^Started unofficially in 1969, -""when Democratic Rep. Jer- Q'me Waldie and Reinecke said vlthey would run. I;-* Waldie's candidacy never Ccaught fire and he was harn- I^pered d u r i n g the c r i t i c a l tnonths of the campaign by vhat he considered a more ^important commitment: his Crole on the House Judiciary ^--Committee in its study of the Cpossible impeachment of ^President Nixon. ·~* Less than a year ago, Re- I~inecke, 50, was the undisputed frontrunner in the Republican -^primary and the polls showed I~Flournoy running last in a -Afield of six prospective candidates. -T.' Then came Reinecke's testi- I-^rnony to the Senate Judiciary ^Committee about his role in -Hthe ITT case and his subse- ;Ctjuent i n d i c t m e n t . He was -^charged with lying to the com- ^-^rnittee about when he f i r s t oiold former Atty. Gen. John XN. Mitchell about a $400,000 goffer from the Sheraton Corp. Xto underwrite the 1972 Repub- ·Clican National Convention in .-·'San Diego. '"-"'. Reinecke was indicted on ·V-April 3, pleaded "absolutely Xnot guilty," and battled u/isuc- .V-cessfully to have his trial held Xbefore the primary. He insist- ^·gd he still had a chance to win, ^'Selling loyal conservatives in J--iVixon fashion, "I'm a fighter, I-not a quitter. The people like a x^'figMer." ·*'^ * * * %;" THE MAJOR issue among p-Democrats v/as their position £.''pn Proposition 9, a sweeping Apolitical reform measure. £xBrpwn's support for the mea' '"sure led to allegations of hy- pocris.^'rom his opponents as RONALD REAGAN A waits Successor his campaign spending soared to the million dollar mark. Moretti backed the measure with reservations: Alioto adamantly opposed it. In one of the contests for the state's 43 U.S. House seats, maverick Republican Rep. Paul N. McCloskey faced one of his stiffest renomination challenges since he defeated Shirley Temple Black to win his seat in 1969. Conservative Gordon Knapp waged a vigorous and well-financed door-tc- door campaign against McCloskey in the GOP primary in a suburban area south of San Francisco. HERE IS the rundown on other primaries: In Iowa, Democratic Rep. John Culver is unopposed for the Democratic nomination to succeed Hughes. In the Republican primary. State Sen. George Milligan faces State Rep. David Stanley, who was defeated six years ago by Hughes. In South Dakota, retired Air Force Col. Leo K. Thorsness, who spent six years in a North Vietnamese prison camp, is considered the leader in the race to oppose McGovern. His opponents are Al Schock, a Sioux Falls businessman, and Barbara Bates Gunderson, a former member of the U.S. Civil Service Commission Gov. Kneip, a Democrat, is opposed in his bid for a third term by Lt. Gov. William Dougherty,^'his running mate the past two campaigns. HAROLD HUGHES Quit Senate Post In New Mexico, there are 10 candidates seeking to replace Gov. Bruce King. The six Democrats include three state legislators, two former state legislators and a former state attorney general. Two former state senators, Joseph R. Skeen and John P. Easham are the two Republican front- runners. In Mississippi. Democratic Rep. David Bowen is favored over Harry G. Robinson, mayor of Houston, in the 2nd District. In the 4th, Republican incumbent Thad Cochran is opposed by Robert Coleman, a brother-in-law of former civil rights activist James Meredith. The winner will face one of five Democrats also running Tuesday. In the 5th District, an insurance man and a teacher are running in the Democratic primary to oppose Republican Rep. Trent Lott. * * * IN MONTANA, former congressman Arnold Olsen attempts to beat two challengers in one D e m o c r a t i c congressional primary. If he wins, he'll face Republican Dick Shoup who defeated him in 1970 and 1972. In the other district, a former Democrat and an advertising salesman compete for the right to oppose Democratic incumbent John Melcher. In New Jersey, Democrats think Watergate makes it possible to take all seven districts held by Republicans. Only one member of the 15-member delegation is retiring, Peter H. B. Frelinghuysen. and two liberal Republicans -- Assembly Minority Leader Thomas H. Kean and Millicent Fenwick, former director of the State Division of Consumer Affairs -- are competing for the GOP nomination to succeed him. In Alabama, Lt. Gov. Jere Beasley. the first lieutenant governor allowed to succeed himself, faces industrialist Charles Woods, who led the field in the first five man primary.
