B. Taylor, Dickinson; Noe Garza, Corpus Christi; Bob Sanchez, McAllen ; Willie Diaz, Del Rio, and Fuentessaid the clubs will help “real Democrats” win the Democratic conventions and write a state platform committed to support LBJ and his legislative proposals. “There is grave danger that President Johnson may be embarrassed and handicapped in the eyes of the whole nation unless all real Texas Democrats move quickly,” the announcement said.

The timing of the visit, less than five weeks before the primary vote, argues more persuasively for this conclusion than the governor’s pro forma statement that it was strictly a “friendly, personal, social” visit argues against it. poor Neil Addington writes in a Houston Post column that Don Yarborough was critical of the Texas press and Johnson in 1962 but praises both this year.
