    MCGOVERN: "What has been their record? Its a record that has given us the highest unemployment in a decade, the worst inflation that we've had in two decades, the biggest federal deficits that we've had since World War Two, and the first international trade deficit we've had since 1888. Do you really want four more years of that?"

    Background: Democratic nominee for the United States Presidential elections next week, Senator George McGovern, received his biggest display of support during campaign motorcade through the Manhattan district of New York on Wednesday (1 Nov). During the rally McGovern maintained his attack on President Nixon's policies.

    Huge crowds jammed the narrow streets to see Senator McGovern campaign with Senator Edward Kennedy. Senator McGovern, suffering from a sore throat and cold, received thunderous applause, was several times interrupted by chants of "We want George - We want George."
