Description : Abstract
Hope Kelly reports that John Sasso (former Chairman, 1988 Dukakis campaign) addressed members of the World Trade Club and spoke about the 1988 presidential campaign of Michael Dukakis (1988 Democratic nominee for US President). Kelly notes that Sasso spoke about the Democratic Party, the role of Jesse Jackson (African American political leader), and the failure of the Dukakis campaign to win over voters. Kelly's report includes footage of Sasso speaking at the luncheon. Sasso talks about the need for the Democratic Party to recognize Jackson's leadership. He also says that negative political advertising was not the reason for Dukakis's defeat. Kelly reviews Sasso's career and his role in the 1988 presidential campaign. Kelly talks about Sasso's resignation from and return to the Dukakis campaign. Kelly's report includes footage of Dukakis and Jackson at the 1988 Democratic National Convention and footage of Sasso during the 1988 presidential campaign.
