Description : Abstract
Sam Fleming reports that Jesse Jackson (Democratic candidate for US President) is campaigning in New Hampshire. Fleming notes that some consider Jackson to be the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, but that many political observers doubt Jackson's chances of winning the nomination. Fleming's report includes footage of Jackson addressing supporters at a campaign rally and footage of Jackson speaking to reporters. Jackson tells reporters that his race is not as important as his credentials. Fleming's report also includes footage from interviews with enthusiastic Jackson supporters in New Hampshire. Fleming notes that Jackson did well with white Democratic voters in the 1984 New Hampshire primary elections. He adds that some observers see Jackson as a candidate supported mainly by African Americans. Fleming interviews Joe Grandmaison (Chairman, New Hampshire Democratic Party). Grandmaison says that it would not be wise to underestimate Jackson and his campaign.
