size nudge in that direction. The job has certainly become one that
you don't look at very frivolously.

Q. What about the Favorite Son states? Do you plan for your or-
ganization to contact Pennsylvania or Ohio?

A. We've got a lot of — this organization will attempt to do every-
thing possible to advance the potential Rockefeller candidacy. And
you know that there are some states that are well along in the de-
finitive process of selecting their delegates to the National Convention.
There are other states that haven't done anything. For example, Mary-
land meets, the Republican Convention is on June 8, and the members
of various county state central committees will at that point elect
delegates to the National Convention. Twenty-six delegates — two
from each Congressional District and 10 at-large — two mandated dele-

who have already been selected.

Q. Governor, as regards to the funding of this headquarters, has
there been any approximate estimate in regard to how much money?

envisage this particular effort as being a very expensive proposition.
We don't need an elaborate front-type of headquarters with a lot of
feverish activity. What we really need is efficiency and the people
who can grind out the letters, and can handle the telephones and get
the job of contact among the local committees best accomplished.

Q. Governor, is there any other office anywhere in the country that
is doing this kind of thing?

A. Not to my knowledge. Not to my knowledge.

The Nelson Committee report is highly critical of my failure to
provide a tax increase this year, the many millions of dollars necessary
to maintain a full Medicaid-Medicare program in the face of runaway
costs. I applaud their dedication to first class health services. But it
