Lindsay in 1965 and Gov. Nelson Rockefeller in 1966. "To those of you who argue that $30 million for each presidential candidate is excessive," he said, "I say that, when compared to recent New York experience, this projected sum will be relatively modest." Every one of the 33 Republicans including senator Scott of Pennsylvania, present voted for repeal. They were joined by 15 Democrats among them Sen. Clar k.Backing the administration forces against repeal were 42 democrats. ' The GOP opposition was directed by Minority Leader Everett M. Dirksen, of Illinois, who told the Senate that political success is not open only to the wealthy. Dirksen Rao on $800 "When I first ran for Congress I had to borrow $800 to do it," Dirksen said.
