REPORTER: Bill Wordham

(Florida) Carter denounces Jackson, though he says Florida race is only between him and Wallace.
REPORTER: Sam Donaldson

(Florida) Jackson doesn't expect to win in Florida. He attacks Carter's tax reform proposal, civil rights record and credibility. It'll help his campaign if Carter doesn't win here.
