Description
Michael Connolly (Massachusetts Secretary of State) draws names from a spinning drum to determine the order of the names of the Democratic presidential candidates on the Massachusetts primary ballot. State officials Thomas Fitzgerald, Paul Williams and others draw names. Jesse Jackson gets the top position on the ballot; Connolly comments on Jackson's popularity with voters. Connolly endorses Walter Mondale (Democratic candidate for US president); says that press conference was organized in order to raise voter awareness and to promote voter registration. Connolly tells the press that he expects to run for the US Senate. Kate McGrath (WGBH reporter) stands outside of Connolly's office to report on Massachusetts Presidential primary elections.
