Iconic moments in New Hampshire primaries
1972 »2 of 8 «
In an emotional speech, Sen. Edmund Muskie of Maine calls the editor of The Manchester Union Leader a "gutless coward" for printing a letter alleging that Muskie had spoken derisively of French-Canadian Americans. The "Canuck letter" later proves fraudulent. But Muskie's highly emotional response sparks fears regarding his emotional stability. He wins New Hampshire, but more narrowly than hoped, and he is quickly eclipsed by second-place finisher George McGovern.
