September 18, 1986
Off to New Orleans & Montgomery Alabama. In N.O. first stop was an outdoor rally for our Senate Candidate Herman Moore. 6,000 were expected, 40,000 came. It was an enthusiastic crowd and all of us were roundly cheered. Then into the city to a lunch fund raiser for him. Afterward the usual reception & photos with a few hundred top donors. Back to the plane & on to Maxwell Air Base at Montgomery. All the mil. & families were out to see us but all we could do was wave. Then into the Civic Center—6,000 on hand for Sen. Jeremiah Denton. This crowd was on it’s feet a half dozen times cheering. Prior to facing them we did another handshake & photo session with about 200 people. Back to Air Force 1 & everyone pleased. During the day we were receiving bulletins about the Daniloff case. Gorbachev has gone on T.V. to declare our man is definitely a spy. I have told him in writing twice he is not. Shevardnadze has arrived to meet with Geo. S. Whether I see him or not is up in the air. Gen. Sec. of the U.N. stated our action ordering 25 U.N. Soviet staff out of the country is against U.N. Charter. He’d better be careful if we cut off U.N. allowance they’d be out of business.
Back to W.H. and so to bed.
Last night—Sen. confirmed my 2 Sup. Ct. nominees—Rhenquist & Scalia. The lynch mob lost.
