George McGovern will begin his formal campaign for the presidency today on, almost literally, a wing and a prayer. The Democratic nominee is starting out way behind the Republican President in the opinion polls but is counting on two things to help him catch up: a newly-chartered jet that will take him to two or three major media markets each day and the hope of a major political blunder by his opponent.

Yost did point out, however, that Moore did not plan to spend much time at the Grundy rally because of other commitments that day. Moore also will attend Labor Day celebrations at Coalton in Randolph County and Big Bear Lake in Preston County. A spokesman for the Miners For Democracy (MFD) said Moore would stand the chance of losing support from many dissident miners if he appeared on the same platform with Boyle and said the union president and the governor may have agreed to work for the reelection of each other.
