Carter Campaigned in Pennsylvania, Ohio

Jimmy Carter, campaigning in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Toledo, Ohio, blamed the nation’s failing economy on President Ford’s republican administration. With seven of the top eleven economic indicators worsening, Carter said this “makes a mockery of all the Ford admoinistration claims about economic recovery.” Meanwhile a Louis Harris nationwide poll showed Carter’s lead down to one percentage point.
