Interview with Seth Taft

Did any of your campaign people, did any of them strategize that maybe you should deal with the race issue? I mean, you obviously had those two newspape--


Oh, I was, I was armed. Cause I, I had a feeling it, it might come up. I would never have brought it up, but he, he finally felt that that was something he had to do, or wanted to do. And, uh, uh, and I had a, I had a, I had a whole folder of, of different issues, little, uh, things. And when, when he, when he made that statement I yanked the folder out that said, "Race" or something like that. I don't remember what. Ah, I had those ads that I'd been carrying around with me, uh, to use if the occasion required.
