Muskie considered man to WASHINGTON (Reuter) Senator Edmund Muskie, of Maine seems certain of a runa- way victory in New Hamp- shire's Democratic party pri- mary election next first electoral step in the pun- ishing, expensive and possibly fruitless campaign to unseat President Nixon later this year. Few political analysts at present expect Nixon to be de- feated in will an- nounce his almost-certain elec- tion plans in about 10 days' time most agree that Muskie Hill be "the man to beat." Muskie formally entered the presidential race with a 10-min- ute television address in which he appealed for a chance to make the United States "a na- lengers. At present, there ar likely to be at least three oth- ers, and one of Senator George promised a tough fight.

If Muskie does not emerge with an acceptable high .vote, he will have a more difficult time the following week when Florida has its primary with an add! tional rafl-load of Democratic aspirants. These include Senators Henry Jackson and Hubert Humphrey the 1968 presidential candidate New York Mayor John Lindsay a Republican turned Demo- possibly Alabama Gov. George Wallace. SENATOR MUSKIE tries to unseat Nixoa tlon of high moral leadership and high purpose." His declaration was no sur- had been following the campaign route for the last year, building up campaign staff and collecting financial and physical support. But the outcome in New Hampshire March 7, would be crucial to his chances when the Democrats nominate their candidate in Miami in July.
