Ronald Reagan Announces for Governor

Ronald Reagan, age 54, announces his candidacy for the Republican nomination for governor of California. This half-hour film was aired on television outlets throughout California shortly after Reagan's formal "live" announcement and news conference on January 4, 1966. Reagan went on to defeat former San Francisco mayor George Christopher for the nomination and incumbent governor Pat Brown in the general election. We're not sure who the announcer is, but would love to know.
