(Studio) Senator Eugene McCarthy says won't announce his President choice until he returns from vacation on French Riviera.
REPORTER: Harry Reasoner
(DC) [MCCARTHY - says has made up mind about supporting Humphrey. Won't say anything for 2 or 3 weeks Heard nothing to indicate change in Vice President's Vietnam policy. No possibility of supporting Nixon. Doesn't feel Nixon is inevitable winner; feels Vice President could close gap. Campaign like football game: Nixon punts on 1st down and Humphrey carries ball some; fumbles some and gets tackled by coach and slowed down.]
