The Republicans were supposed to be in San Diego this week. The Republicans moved out, so Democrats are moving in. And we're going to be moving in stronger and stronger right on through November 7.
The Republican plans for San Diego got shredded last Spring, and Mr. Nixon's candidacy will be shredded before November, by his attempts to hide and conceal and keep secrets from the public.
One more day has passed, and still Mr. Nixon has not told the people where ten million dollars of his campaign funds came from. Has the evidence been shredded?
Are there names on the list to be ashamed of? Are there special interests obtaining special access to the White House?
San Diego is a city of honor and integrity. It has a military city's sense of decency.
San Diego is a city of surprises for Mr. Nixon in November. Because the people of San Diego want an administration in Washington that does not hide and conceal.
This is not a city that approves of burglars and bunglers of the night, who install "bugging" devices in private offices, and cash checks traceable to Mr. Nixon's campaign offices.
This is not a city that approves of an administration that lifts the blindfold from the eyes of lady Justice, so she can wink at the interests of powerful friends.
San Diego is a city of political restlessness, new tides, new directions. We want to listen in San Diego. And we want to talk: To talk about candor in Government, about fairness to all citizens, and about the economic problems of an economy dependent on war and changing military fashions. We want to talk quiet, decent sense to quiet decent people.
