Preyer Is The Man
The second primary contest between Dan K. Moore and
Richardson Preyer, for the Democratic nomination for Governor,
has staunchly reinforced our conviction voiced before the May
30 voting: Preyer is the man to lead North Carolina and the
State's Democratic party in the coming lour years. We urge
readers to vote for him on Saturday.
The second primary campaign- a rugged testing ground for
any candidate ? has offered a steadily mounting display of
Preyer's strengths and Moore's weaknesses. Consider these
? No sooner were the returns in than Moore made a bid for
the racists in I. Beverly Lake's camp, introducing a vicious
political technique that Lak_> himself had even spurned in his
* ? In courting Lake's endorsement, Moore let Lake call the
tune to such an extent that he would go to Raleigh, if elected,
"expecting to seek Dr. Lake'.- rdvice frequently," and promising
an unknown number of ??ppointments to Lake supporters.
Whatever part of Moore that was not already owned by the
lobbyists, a chain hank, power companies, highway equipment
manufacturers and road contractors was shared with Lake in
about as craven a capitulation as the political bargaining table
has seen in this state.
? So unsure was Moore of himself that he refused ? dis
courteously and petulantly ? to face his opponent and the people
of the state in a series cf television debates proposed by Preyer,
justifying the widely held assumption that Moore had more to
hide than to reveal.
? The unsigned smear sheets featuring race, communism and
personal villification came from the Moore camp, whether with
or without the candidate's knowledge is immaterial: he attracted
the sort of vjpporter who would use them.
And then these points, too:
? The stature that characterized Preyer, as judge and out
standing citizen, before he filed as a candidate, and that was
evident all through the first primary race has continued to rise,
rather than fall, during the second primary campaign. What we
mean is summed up in a paragraph from one of his TV ad
dresses: "I'm running for Governor because I think I can be
