Episode 8: The Campaigns of 1969-70

A Good Run returns with Dan and Asher discussing the end of John Lindsay’s successful reelection campaign and the somewhat less successful campaigns led by Robert Morgenthau and Norman Adler. In describing the Morgenthau campaign, Dan writes: “We drove hundreds and hundreds of miles west through the counties of Montgomery, Herkimer, Otsego, Madison, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca, Wayne, Ontario, Livingston, Genesee and Wyoming, stopping in every small town where our registration lists showed clumps of Democrats. By the time we were halfway through, the locals stopped asking if I came from New York City.”
