Gov Jim Thompson (R) Reflects on the 1982 Election with Historian Mark DePue, Part II

From Springfield:  This is a second installment of a two-hour long conversation from December, 2014, as Mark DePue, the Director of the Oral History Project at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, went in-depth with former Gov Jim Thompson as they look back on the very close 1982 Gubernatorial election.

They recount the issues, the attacks, and the events in the nation and in Illinois, that combined to make this the closest race for governor in Illinois history.
