Ruby Collins High Point coordinator for the Reagan Campaign. A hard work paid mrs. Collins said she began to feel during the last week of the Campaign that Reagan was going to win. A a lot of people changed their minds. I was hoping that this would happen but i was not really in sure until the last week. I think it was because of Reagan coming Back into the state talking again to the people about the issues. They began to see and realize what he was she did not see the primary As another party struggle Between gov. James Holshouser who supported the president and sen. Jesse Helms who supported Reagan mrs. Collins said. A i was not running on that at All. I just would not want to get into that.

Georgian Jimmy Carters Victory had no such regional character. Carter vanquished Alabama gov. George c. Wallace in every Section of the state and got the votes of a majority of every major voting group in the party. Reagan As expected swamped Ford in the agricultural Eastern third of the state. The Republican voters in that area tend to be sex democrats who switched parties in the 1950s and 1960s because of their dissatisfaction with the democrats policies in civil rights and other Domestic areas. Republicans there look to sen. Jesse Helms r-., for leadership Helms was Reagan a state chairman. Reagan a margin in the Eastern counties was better than 2-to-l.
