About this Item

xvii, [1], 256, [2] pages. Index. Nice, long inscription on fep signed by Bill Gill. DJ has some wear, soiling, and edge tears. Foreword by William F. Buckley, Jr. Introduction by Senator Paul Laxalt. William J. Gill was an author, journalist, and television producer who covered Washington, D.C. for decades. Frederick Clifton White, Sr., known as F. Clifton White or Clif White (June 13, 1918 - January 9, 1993), was an American political consultant and campaign manager for candidates of the Republican Party, the New York Conservative Party, and some foreign clients. He is best remembered as the moving force behind the Draft Goldwater Committee from 1961 to 1964, which secured a majority of delegates to nominate U.S. Senator Barry M. Goldwater of Arizona, the first modern conservative presidential candidate since Calvin Coolidge. White was credited with organizing highly effective grassroots operations in the states that secured enough delegates for a surprising Goldwater victory on the first ballot at the 1964 Republican National Convention held in San Francisco. White's team bested the better-funded Eastern Establishment campaigns of New York Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller, Pennsylvania Governor William Scranton, and several others. In 1968, White guided Ronald Reagan's brief presidential campaign. At the time Reagan had been governor of California for fewer than two years. Reagan came in third at the 1968 Republican National Convention held in Miami Beach, Florida, with 182 delegates, behind Rockefeller and first-ballot winner Richard M. Nixon, the former Vice President of the United States. Back in New York, White managed the 1970 campaign of James L. Buckley, brother of the journalist William F. Buckley, Jr., for the U.S. Senate on the Conservative Party line. Once in the White House in 1981, President Reagan named White as the director of Radio Marti, which broadcast pro-U.S. programming to communist Cuba. Bookseller Inventory # 72988
