News Archive: Goldwater returns Reagan's favor(s)

This brief reports on Barry Goldwater’s early support of a Reagan gubernatorial candidacy.  Goldwater told attendees of the Americanism Education League, “I’ve tried to beguile [Reagan] to run for office before and now the time is getting ripe.  You folks keep the pressure on him.”

Update: As of 8/31/2013, the link above returns a 404 error message (like all the Modesto Bee material hyperlinked on this blog).  It is unknown if the Bee ever plans to restore access to its archived papers.
