Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Correspondence, position papers, press releases, memoranda, public opinion polling data, financial records, sound recordings, and video tapes relating to the campaign of Ronald Reagan for the Republican Party presidential nomination in 1976. Includes a few post-1976 records of Citizens for the Republic, the successor organization to Citizens for Reagan.
The Citizens for Reagan organization originated from a strong belief of some of his supporters that Ronald Reagan should be persuaded to run for the Republican nomination for president in 1976, becoming Reagan's official campaign committee for the 1976 election. A committee was formed for that purpose with Senator Paul Laxalt, former governor of Nevada, as its chairman. The goal of this committee was to set up an organization to lead an effective political campaign and raise money needed to conduct a successful campaign in the event of the announcement of Ronald Reagan's candidacy for the president of the United States.
