In this segment, taped for KDFW’s “Eyewitness News” in September 1978, Dallas-based reporter Jim Ruddy covers a political rally in Houston for Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Clements. Featuring the first joint political appearance of the 1978 season for former-U.S. President Gerald R. Ford and future-U.S. President Ronald Reagan, this segment also contains footage of President Ford and Clements at a rally on the steps leading to the South Mall on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin.
