(Studio) Report on presidential candidate Ronald Reagan.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(No location given) Reagan, 64, is ex-actor, ex-California governor, radio commentator and speaker. Not easy to win president nomination from incumbent. Reagan is far right conservative. [REAGAN - says answer to inflation is balanced budget. Govt. must review spending practices. Many services must be reduced.] Reagan says balance the budget and no government jobs to correct unemployment. [REAGAN - says unemployment politically unpopular and only palliatives used.] Re: dissatisfaction with government, says bureaucracy should be reduced. [REAGAN - says most dissatisfaction due to centralized level of government] No cuts with regard to defense budget. [REAGAN - says US can't afford to come to 2nd place with regard to weapons and strength.] Reagan recommends mandatory sentence for anyone convicted of committing crime with gun. [REAGAN - says government should review how it could free research of new energy resources and development of old resources and decontrol of prices. Doesn't think some of panic warranted about offshore oil drilling.] He's leader of Republican right.
