Seated at a desk filled with papers, Senator Hiram Johnson speaks into a microphone for the newsreel camera. He opposes a third term for FDR and supports Republican Wendell Wilkie. Cuts from Johnson's CU, Johnson coughs and says, "It makes no difference to me whether this chance of election may have one sort or another. It makes a vast difference that I shall preserve that which has been most dear to me in my life -- my independence and my country's will." Cut. "I emphasize, this an American crisis alone, and for that reason, we must salvage ourselves as Americans in order that our coveted and boasted American liberty shall not perish from the earth."
