RAY BLANTON
Governor Blanton sends gracious letter to collector
Typed Letter signed: "Ray Blanton" as Governor, 1p, 7¼x10½. Nashville, Tennessee, 1975 December 30. On official letterhead to Danny Franklin, Phoenix, Arizona. In full: "In response to your recent request, I am happy to send you a photograph. [not included] I am glad to be included in your collection. I appreciate your encouragement and support. I hope that you will visit the State of Tennessee soon. Please be assured of my willingness and desire to serve you. Sincerely." Leonard Ray Blanton (1930-1996), a Democrat, was a US Representative from Tennessee (1967-1973) and Governor of that State (1975-1979). He was accused of using his office to sell pardons and went to federal prison for selling liquor licenses, but questions were later raised about the propriety of the charges and Blanton always maintained his innocence. After serving his sentence, Blanton ran for Congress in 1988, receiving a mere 7% of the vote. Light paperclip stain at top center. Otherwise, fine condition.
