Politically Speaking: Ford in Sioux City, 1974

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking
Major props to Dan Johnson of Luverne, Minn., for emailing this afternoon with a link to a Web site with a speech transcript of the sole visit President Gerald R. Ford made in Sioux City while president. In his remarks, which began at 3:25 p.m. on Oct. 1974 (the reporter in me notes how the time was very nice for ease of deadline writing), Ford tailored his remarks to the Siouxland crowd, mentioning corn and soybean production, dairy imports and how "I could not come to Sioux City, the heart of the slaughter and livestock industry, particularly the cattlefeeding business, and not say a word about the production of meat."
