Subseries 3. GOP, 1977-1978

Scope and Content Notes:

The Republican Party was active especially in the Thornburgh primary campaign for Governor, but also in the general election. Following eight years of a Democratic Governor, the GOP was particularly eager to have a Republican elected. The party’s activity was especially useful in field organization across the state. Thornburgh had not run for office since an unsuccessful 1966 Campaign for Congress, and was from the western part of Pennsylvania; thus it was advantageous to have the GOP participate both in statewide organizing and fundraising. This was particularly true in the primary. The records in this subseries include: leadership lists, correspondence, events, fundraising, drafts, and plans. The material dates from 1977 to 1978.
