Description
Lamar Alexander, former U.S. Secretary of Education and former Tennessee governor, announces his candidacy for the 1996 Republican presidential nomination in Hopkinton. Among other issues, Alexander lays out plans to shrink the size of the federal government-- including abolishing the U.S. Department of Education-- thus allowing for more money and decision-making power in the states for education, welfare reform, and law enforcement programs. In interviews following the announcement, audience members share their reactions, and an Alexander aid discusses campaign strategy.
