Summary
  • Recording of a statewide broadcast consisting of endorsements for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Thomas B. Stanley, from several prominent Virginians. On WRNL in Richmond, Horace H. Edwards and Watkins M. Abbitt endorse Stanley and praise his experience. Also endorsing Stanley is J. Lindsay Almond, Democratic candidate for attorney general, on WDBJ in Roanoke, and A. E. S. Stephens, Democratic candidate for lieutenant-governor, on WLPM in Suffolk, Virginia. On WMVA in Martinsville, Thomas Stanley criticizes the proposals of the Republican candidate Ted Dalton, notably the $100 million bond issue for roads, and praises Virginia's pay-as-you-go spending philosophy and political ideals. The State Democratic Campaign Committee purchased the air time for the broadcast
