ADDRESS* DELIVERED FROM THE ROOSEVELT TRAIN AT THE FAIR GROUNDS RALEIGH, N. C.
OCTOBER 25, 1932
My Fellow Citizens:
The State College men will remember that in 1913 our distinguished visitor came to North Carolina and to State College and delivered the commencement address upon that occasion. Again in 1929 he came to Raleigh and at the State Fair spoke to the people of North Carolina and paid tribute to our State. He comes to North Carolina today to express to you and to the people of this entire State his gratitude and appreciation for the loyalty and devotion of North Carolina. I present to you a direct descendant of the political philosophy of Woodrow Wilson. (Cheers.) The people of North Carolina are on the move--and they are moving en masse to Franklin D. Roosevelt. I can say to him that in 1928 North Carolina gave 61,000 majority to Herbert Hoover. In 1932 North Carolina, with your support and the support of the Democracy of this State will give 161,000 majority to Franklin D. Roosevelt. (Cheers.) Everywhere in this world today, my fellow citizens, he is proclaimed in every section by every color and shade of political opinion the great leader and the liberal thinker of the world. I present to you the next President of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt.
My friends, I am very glad to be here once more, especially as the guest of my old friend, Governor Gardner, and it is good to____________________
