Reagan and (2/5 of) the Rat Pack

n. a. (1970, July 16). Dean Martin backs Reagan. The Bulletin, p. 25.

n. a. (1970, July 16). Dean Martin may support Reagan. The Free Lance-Star, p. 8.

n. a. (1970, July 16). Dean Martin falls in behind Frank Sinatra. The Modesto Bee, p. A3.

The above three articles all link to the announcement that long-time Democratic entertainer Dean Martin (of "Rat Pack" fame) would be joining Frank Sinatra in supporting Reagan's reelection campaign for California Governor.  For some reason, the Modesto Bee felt it newsworthy to point out that Governor Reagan flubbed and all-but-unveiled the Martin endorsement a bit early.
