QUESTION 18
INTERVIEWER:

Do you understand at all, and can you describe what the dilemma of the Republican and Democratic Parties were at that point? And why your father felt that he could fit into this niche?

RAYMOND HAIGHT:

My father believed that the Republicans were a very conservative, 1920, no regulation, no control, free capitalism, which would not solve the problem as far as California was concerned, and he saw the Democrats having gone far to the left with socialism and radical idea of government programs, and that he would be the candidate of the middle of the road.
