JOHN B. ANDERSON
As Chairman of the Republican Conference (1971), he signs a typed letter thanking an official of the Republican National Committee for briefing Republican Congressmen.
Typed Letter signed: "John", 1 page. 6x9. Washington, D.C., 1971 April 29. On his letterhead as Chairman of the House Republican Conference to Ernie Minor, Republican National Committee, Washington, D.C. In full: "Just a note to thank you very much for joining me and my Republican colleagues in the House for breakfast on Wednesday. We greatly appreciated your taking the time to meet with us in your new role and to discuss informally over what must be called a non-gourmet breakfast the assistance which your Division can offer to Members. I hope that this opportunity to meet with the Members proved as worthwhile to you as it did to me and my colleagues. With warmest regards, I am, sincerely". John Anderson's politics changed dramatically during his two decades as a Republican in the US House of Representatives (1961-1981). He began as one of the House's most conservative members. Then, while remaining a fiscal conservative, he moved steadily to the left on other issues. No longer a member of the Republican leadership, Anderson ran as an independent candidate for President in 1980, claiming to offer a middle ground between conservative Republican Ronald Reagan and liberal Democrat Jimmy Carter. He received 5.7 million popular votes (7%) of the total, but had polled more strongly than that for much of the race. After the election, Anderson endorsed Instant Running Voting and other measures to reduce the electoral dominance of the two major US parties. In 2008, Anderson endorsed Democrat and fellow Illinoisan Barack Obama for President. Normal mailing folds. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
