    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 1: GOVERNOR ROCKEFELLER: "....AND I SHALL GO TO NEW HAMPSHIRE IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THIS MEETING TO FORMALLY ANNOUNCE MY CANDIDACY FOR THE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION, AND MY ENTRY AT THE PROPER TIME IN THE NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY ELECTIONS OF MARCH 10, 1964.



    I SHALL ENTER OTHER STATE PRIMARY CONTESTS BETWEEN NOW AND THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION IN JULY.



    I HAVE REACHED THIS DECISION BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT VITAL PRINCIPLES ARE AT STAKE AT THE NEXT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. THESE PRINCIPLES AND THE POLICIES THAT SUPPORT THEM MUST BE BROUGHT BEFORE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, AND THE DELEGATES OF THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION FOR THEIR THOUGHTFUL CONSIDERATION.



    IT IS A LACK OF DISINTERESTEDNESS AND UNDERSTANDING OF THESE VITAL PRINCIPLES, AND THE POLICIES TO CARRY THEM OUT, THAT I BELIEVE TO BE AT THE ROOT OF THE KENNEDY ADMINISTRATION'S FAILURES AT HOME AND ABROAD. FOR INSTANCE, ITS FAILURE TO STIMULATE THE AMERICAN ECONOMY, SO AS TO PROVIDE THE JOBS AND THE OPPORTUNITIES PROMISED TO OUR PEOPLE BY THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IN 1960; ITS FAILURE TO PRESERVE AND STRENGTHEN THE UNITY OF THE FREE WORLD, AND THE VITALITY F OUR ALLIANCES; AND ITS FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND AND MEET THE MENACE OF INTERNATIONAL COMMUNISM."
