(Studio) President Nixon's China trip draws publicity away from other President candidates.
REPORTER: Garrick Utley

(New Hampshire) A well-financed campaign in New Hampshire is being conducted for Nixon. Hopefully, success in New Hampshire will put Nixon's Republican opponents, Representative Paul McCloskey and Representative John Ashbrook, out of the running early. Transportation Secretary John Volpe, New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and others campaign for Nixon in New Hampshire. Nixon gets more media coverage than all other candidates combined due to China trip.
REPORTER: Douglas Kiker

(Miami, Florida) Nixon's campaign headquarters has unlisted number as the President goes all-out not to campaign, but spend time running country'. (Tallahassee, Florida) Cabinet members (ex., Interior Secretary Rogers Morton) campaign for Nixon in Florida while he receives publicity in China. Representative Paul McCloskey concentrates in New Hampshire and does not campaign in Florida.
REPORTER: Catherine Mackin

(Tampa, Florida) Representative John Ashhrook, however, runs hard in Florida. [ASHBROOK - says Nixon's China trip won't be a major factor in final analysis, though he is receiving attention now.]
