The same is true this year. The voters should make their judgment not only on the basis of what the candidates declare for, but on something else equally as important. Can they deliver on what they promise? Because of what he stands for, and because we believe he has the ability to match it, The Reporter-News herewith declares its support for John Connally for governor. In his visit to Abilene a week ago, Connally dealt forthrightly with the things he thinks are important in Texas affairs, and what he proposes to do about them.    • He said he wants to see Texas “No. 1 in educational opportunities, industrial growth, and in job opportunities.” He said he would try to get rid of “inequities” in the sales tax but he declared it would be irresponsible to repeal it unless there were a better plan to replace it. Connally said he would seek legislation to rid the state of loan sharks. He called it “deplorable that we do not have the leadership to obtain such legislation.” He promised to work for charlges in merit auto insurance, to penalize careless and negligent drivers, but not to treat minor moving violations the same as major ones. To implement his program, he would seek action to limit the governor’s tenure to two two-year terms; would place greater emphasis on education; push a drive for more industry, and develop a better program to attract tourists. He promises decisive leadership in the governor’s office, saying “I can give action and can work with the Legislature.” It avails little if a governor has a positive program but can’t create the environment in which to work with the legislature to put it over. Connally believes, and this newspaper agrees, that he is the best qualified candidate for the office because of his proven success in business, politics and government. In business he worked for and later headed the largest independent oil firm in the nation. There he had to make crupial decisions on large problems as a matter of daily routine. He also served ably on the board of directors of one of the largest railroads in the land, the New York Central. Though he has never before run for political office, he has for years been active in Texas Democratic Party affairs and knows the art of politics both as it is applied within the party and within government. This is an essential skill for an effective governor. For 11 months until his recent resignation, Connally served as Secretary of the Navy. In that post he successfully dealt with problems at least equal in import to those he would face as governor of Texas. John Connally has the ability, experience, program and desire to make Texas a great governor. The Reporter-News hopes the voters will give him that opportunity.
