  • Description

    Republican candidates for their party's Presidential nomination are campaigning hard in New Hampshire where the nation's first Presidential primary election will be held Tuesday (10 March).

    Four Republican candidates will be listed on the ballot in New Hampshire. Governor Nelson Rockefeller of New York and U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona are considered the front runners. U.S. Senator Margaret Chase Smith of Maine and Harold Stassen of Pennsylvania also are on the ballot.

    In addition, write-in campaigns are being conducted for former Vice President Richard Nixon and former U.S. Senator Henry Cabot Lodge who now is the U.S. Ambassador in South Vietnam. Space is left on the ballot for voters to write in the name of the candidate of his choice if it is not among the names printed on the ballot.

    Rockefeller and Goldwater are conducting the most vigorous campaigns. Both have travelled extensively in the state. They have made dozens of formal speeches and spent many hours talking informally with people on the streets and in factories, shops and offices.

    The Goldwater campaign, in particular, has been embellished by such crowd pleasers as Indian bands.

    Both Goldwater and Rockefeller supporters claim to be confident of victory. The New Hampshire primary is considered important because it may give the first clue to the preference of Republican voters.

    There has been no contest in the New Hampshire Democratic primary. President Johnson is considered certain to win the party's nomination.
