Subseries 3. Ertel Opposition Research, 1979-1982

Scope and Content Notes:

Always important in campaigns is the research into one’s opponent, their record of accomplishments, voting records, and personal and campaign conduct. The Thornburgh campaign was particularly alert to these needs with extensive and detailed resultant information. Ertel had been in state government, but was at this time a one term U.S. Congressman. His record was not distinguished, but no stones were left unturned in his assessment. Ertel’s conduct of the campaign was challenging and is documented in the following files. The first seven Folders comprise what was originally the Ertel opposition research binder put together for campaign guidance and reference. Subsequent files are additions and follow the campaign by month. The research materials date from 1979 to 1982.
