Transcript Colorful candidates crisscross Houston Presidential campaigr In a sea of mud-slinging and vague issues, the 1976 Presidential hopefuls stormed into Texas. In the final days before the May 1 Texas primary, the front runners of both major parties swung their campaigns through the state. Ford, Reagan, Wallace, and Carter, in their one-night campaign stops in Houston, spoke to large crowds of unusually motivated voters. Only two weeks after his son's stint here, President Ford stepped into Houston and immediately began blasting opponent Ronald Reagan. Under extremely tight security, Ford repeatedly slashed at Reagan's criticisms of the present administration and insisted that "any donkey can kick a barn down, but it takes a good carpenter to build one up." Between the stabbing accusations at Reagan, Ford spoke of his past dealings with unemployment, inflation and U.S. foreign policy. These accomplishments, he believed, would help the voter pick him as the most qualified. Twenty-four hours later, Reagan was slinging back. After charging Ford with "giving away" the Panama Canal, Reagan went on to castigate the entire administration. Ford's stands on welfare, foreign policy, and government expenditures were all attacked by the actor-turned-politician. "I may be paralyzed in the legs, but not in the head," was the claim of Democratic Presidential candidate George Wallace. Despite his underdog billing in the state's upcoming primary and consecutive losses to opponent Jimmy Carter, Wallace assured his supporters that he was still in the rur ning for the nomination. After vague! defining his stands on capitol punish ment and the national budget, Wallac ended his speech with conforms mud-slinging at Jimmy Carter. With a surprisingly high turnout fc the primary days later, the peani farmer from George dampened Wa lace's spirit with a very solid defea The 400,000 voting Republicans i Houston were apparently unsatisfie with the present administratior Reagan, with over 60% of the vot<: soundly defeated Ford. 96 Campaign Trail
