The election of 1964 in Texas for President, U.S. Senator and Governor as seen through the eyes of the Republican Candidate for Governor. The traumatic effect on the outcome of that election by the assassination of President Kennedy and the wounding of Governor Connally in Dallas on November 22,1963, and the involvement of the Republican Candidate in helping the police in the interrogation of Marina Oswald-the widow of the accused assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. The recruitment of the Republican Candidate for Governor-a successful engineer and oil and gas executive, and how he organized his backers for the campaign.
His study of the issues and the formation of a platform. The campaign trail through the primaries, the State Convention and the Republican Convention in San Francisco. The split in the Republican party in San Francisco between the backers of Barry Goldwater and the backers of Nelson Rockefeller and the attempt by Governor Scranton of Pennsylvania to heal that split by hosting a meeting at his mansion attended by Eisenhower, Nixon and the Republican Candidates for Governor.
The facts discovered by the candidate which showed how Lyndon Johnson used bogus votes to become a u. S. Senator in the election of 1948. The emergence and charisma of George H.W. Bush that that was the start of a political career that led to the Presidency. The election itself with comments on the campaigns of George H.W. Bush for the Senate and Barry Goldwater for President. The satisfaction of having been a part of making Texas a two party state.
