1980 Primary inaccuracy?Edit

I fixed "he found two chairs - one for him and front-runner George H.W. Bush, and himself." changing it to "he found two chairs - one for front-runner George H.W. Bush, and himself." The grammar is now correct, but I think the statement may still be inaccurate. My recollection was that Reagan was still ahead in the delegate count although Bush had the momentum having won the last two state's primaries and was favored to win in New Hampshire. I think Bush was favored to win it all at that point, but technically, Reagan was still the "front-runner". I'm going off memory, so I don't want to edit the page without the sources in front of me, I just want to point out the possible error here for someone who has access to the history. 216.9.182.249 (talk) 05:55, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

1980 primaryEdit

Rich Farmbrough Regarding the hatnote you just placed, I'm of two minds whether the material about Reagan and the 1980 primary is excessive. It certainly looks excessive to a casual view - but it describes what is, by far, the incident for which this small local newspaper is known nationally. There's a non-small chance that somebody coming to this article is looking for information about it rather than any other information about the newspaper. I think this is a case where I'd err on the side of caution and leave it, partly because it doesn't seem to exist anywhere else (it's not in Reagan's article, where it would get lost).

I had a long connection with the newspaper so probably shouldn't wade in too much, if I may be a wikipedia purist. - DavidWBrooks (talk) 15:04, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

DavidWBrooks - It's probably this edit by USer:Sdkb that you are referring to.
I have no objection to removing it. All the best: Rich Farmbrough 13:10, 22 January 2021 (UTC).
Ah, so it is - my error. - DavidWBrooks (talk) 13:59, 22 January 2021 (UTC)
