Snippet Transcripts
they just goes back to struggle for it. Another activity has been Kennedy has been shot. Is that possible? If possible later. It is possible only Senator Kennedy. Oh, my God. Senator Kennedy has been shot manager and possibly shot in the head. I am right here. Ray, for Johnson has a hold of a man. Apparently has fired the shot. He has fired the shot. He still has the gun. The gun is pointed at me. Right? At this moment, I hope they can get the gun out of his hand. Be very careful. Gone, Gone, gone. Stay away from the guy. Stay away from the desk. His hand is frozen. Get some, Get some. Get a stop! Take a hold of his stomach. Break it if you have to get a stop. Alright, Accident raper. Get it? Get the gun raper. Okay, now hold on. Just a guy. Hold on to him. Hold on. Ladies and gentleman, they have They're gonna wait for the minute in this. They've got the gun. I can't see. I can't see the man. I can't see who it is. But Senator Kennedy right now is on the ground. He has been shot hold him. Hold him. Hold him. We don't want another Oswald holding. Refer. We don't want another Oswald. Hold him. Keep people away from him. Keep people away from him. The senator is on the ground. He's bleeding profusely from apparently playback. Apparently, the senator has been shut from the, uh, in the exactly It's impossible. That was the report reporter Andrew West of the mutual broadcasting System, whose alongside Senator Kennedy during the shooting early today in Los Angeles. Some could not believe the news was true. If it is true, all I've got to say is, I hope they find out who did it, said the Army specialist 4 21 year old Walter Roster of Claritin, Pennsylvania. Sergeant William Butner of Toledo, Ohio, said, I'm shot. I wouldn't have voted for him, but I'm shot. Marine Gunnery Sergeant Minneapolis, Minnesota, saying that I can't understand that mentality, that type of mentality that makes war. I guess if you don't like something, kill it, said Sergeant James A. Spawn of Shelby, North Carolina. So far as the Negro is concerned, I think this really hurts us. I just hope that he will still be able to win and set another specialist four, James Handling of Uniontown, Pennsylvania. I can't believe it. I was just hoping Bobby would have made it, that's all. I just can't believe it, and that was one man, said Charles, 14 of Ashland, Kentucky. I was hoping that would really get elected. A 21 year old airman first class from Brockton, Massachusetts, Edward Dench shook his head, repeated several times. That's really bad. Just some of the comment when the soldiers in Vietnam, whether they favorite him or opposed in American soldiers in Vietnam, angered and shot when they heard the news of center Robert Kennedy had been shot in Los Angeles Attorney General Ramsey Clark saying that the FBI's investigating every possible angle in the shooting, including the possibility of conspiracy. But the ads at a news conference in Washington. According to the information that I have at the moment we have no evidence of conspiracy, of course. A directive from the White House from President Johnson declaring that Secret Service personnel should give protection to all of the presidential candidates, and of course, Vice President Hubert Humphrey already has that protection. Los Angeles police, saying they believe the shooting was the work of the one man that they have in custody, the man so far refusing to give his identity or answer any questions. He's described a short about 25 years of age with dark bushy hair and the swarthy complexion. Well, he say he is under 24 hour maximum security guard and will not be viewed by the public to prevent any recurrence of the Dallas murder of Lee Harvey Oswald. John, I think at this moment, let's get the latest results in the California Republican senatorial race. It appears at this moment, Doctor Max Roberti and I've spoken Conservative has defeated the U. S. Senator Thomas, assistant Republican floor leader for the Republican senatorial nomination in California. Latest returns 78% of the precincts reporting give Rafferty 49% of the vote and the 48% of the vote. Rafferty took an unbeatable lead as the late reporting precincts and his strong holes in populous Los Angeles. Orange in San Diego County's tabulated. The votes from Tuesday's primary did, however, led in the early returns. It had been forecast the day before the election that Rafferty was picking up a strong strength from the areas here in Southern California. And it appears now for sure that he has defeated the incumbent, Senator Thomas. John. Would you care to comment on that? Of course. This is going to represent quite a change politically, Uh, in the, uh, California representation in the United States Senate, Thomas Kiko has been in the Senate, I believe for 16 years, or at least when his current term ends and whoever the new senator is takes over, it will have been 16 years. Uh, it means, of course, that George Murphy will become California senior senator. Whoever is elected in November be at Rafferty or Cranston will then be the junior senator from California. Thomas had a great deal of seniority in the United States Senate. He was the minority whip. That is, uh, the man in charge for the Republicans in the Senate of kind of getting the party members in the line saying that they were present for important votes and so forth. But apparently the Republicans of California have not seen fit to return Thomas Kiko to the United States Senate. Max Rafferty will be their nominee for November, and he will run against Alan Cranston, for the Democrats, he is the former state controller. And how I think now at this time we should repeat the latest details we have on the condition of Senator Robert Kennedy. Senator Kennedy was shot last night by would be assassin at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. After 3.5 hours of neurosurgery at Good Samaritan Hospital. He has survived. He was taken from the operating room back to the intensive care unit of the hospital. Deputy Mayor Joseph Quinn of Los Angeles had been in the hospital during the surgery on Kennedy. Quinn reportedly is close to members of the Kennedy Party He
