Now fares Wallace by Wike Sherman Star City editor in a recent edition of time Magazine. Winton m red Quot Blount was quoted As saying anyone who would run against George Wallace for governor this year would have to be a nut Republican gubernatorial nominee Elvin Mccary of Anniston watched Wallace Bury Gene Mclain. Quot shorty Price Thomas Wesley Robinson and Quot big Lim Folsom in tuesday s democratic primary Quot now i m the Only nut in the Mccary says with a Grin he will oppose Wallace in the november general election although he served two terms in the Alabama Senate ran unsuccessfully twice for the Alabama House and lost a 1946 bid to be lieutenant governor Mccary admits readily that his is hardly a household name in Alabama he hot is to do something about that before november. His candidacy surprised even his own fellow republicans when he qualified for governor on the last possible Day Calhoun county gop regulars were trying to talk him into another try for a House seat but Mccary said if he ran. It would be for the top elective office in the state. Ira waited he says to see if any other Republican would oppose Wallace none die so Mccary plunked Down his papers and Fet deciding to take on the governor in a year when everyone said Wallace could not lose Mccary had not even told his wife he would run for governor Quot i told her. And she asked. A Why before i could answer our six Vear old daughter said. Mother you know it s a Challenge the Challenge was accepted. Mccary says because candidacies like his Are the Only Way to build a Quot live. Viable and he feels the state will suffer until it has a True Tori party system. Quot i think anyone who Ever served in the Alabama legislature Las he did from 1942 46 and 1950-54 it would like to be governor and thinks he can do a better Job Quot after watching state government from the inside and out for 30 years. Mccary feels he is As qualified As anybody to run for governor and More qualified than some Quot i be known George Wallace since 1946 when he was elected to the House he says Quot of course Back then. George was a very Strong Liberal and wrote Liberal speeches for the Folsom Campaign a big Jim Quot would win his first term that year and Wallace would serve first As an assistant attorney general then four years in the House Quot basically. George Wallace is a populist How he s convinced business people that he s a conservative is a real Selling Job frankly i believe i m a better Democrat than George Wallace Mccary was once a True believer in the party of Franklin Roosevelt and Harry s Truman Active in the Young democrats in Calhoun county former president of the county chapter and vice president of the state organization he worked in the Campaign to elect Bibb Graves governor of Alabama in 1935 appointed chairman of the Calhoun county Board of registrars he ran for the House in 1938 against the father of the current Dean of the Calhoun county delegation. Hugh Merrill the elder Merrill Defeated him. But Mccary Learned some political lessons to be used four years later in a successful bid for the Senate after losing the 1946 lieutenant governor s race to Clarence Inzer the Navy Veteran sat out four years before returning to the Senate in 1950 he chose not to run in 1954. Got involved in business and did not Campaign for office again for 16 years but something happened to that staunch Democrat during the second term Quot i voted for Mccary says Quot and then for Republican senatorial candidate Jim Martin against Lister Hill in 1962 Quot the switch to republicanism came Mccary now says because he saw the two party system As the Only route to political Reform in the state the two party system is vital to the legislature he says with feeling Quot in the legislature every time one person opposes the governor it becomes or is pictured As. A personality situation there is no discussion of the issues another party is the Only Way you can do that and an individual of the same part faces an almost impossible tags a in challenging an incumbent governor treat pressure is brought to Bear against a Maverick within his own party according to Mccary. And raising Campaign funds becomes almost impossible Quot a second party is the Only Way Quot i think i can run a creditable Campaign with $100,000 i can get that a i d prefer More like $150,000 but i can do it on $100,000 the Money will come from his own savings Small contributions and the party. Mccary says a believes the Campaign will Cost him Money his Rule of thumb for expenditures is to count on slightly More than $1,000 for each of see Mccary.
