Approved For Release 2001/03/06,.;-GIA-RDP84-00933R000200020011-8 Approved or e e 2001/03/06 The 7th congressional district of North Carolina is the southern portion of the state's coastal region, the part of North Carolina most like the Deep South. Wilmi- npton is an old Carolina coastal city that never became a major port-a would-be Charleston or Savannah. Favettcville- ihe district's other pepu;aticn center, lies across the rather sparsely settled coastal plain ,o ,e nest. The city's population exceeds only slightly that of adjacent Fort Braes, the huge Army base (population 47,000), to v:h:ch Fayetteville owes much of its recent prosperity. Bragg is the home of the Army's 101st Airborne paratroopers, and nearby, along the garish strip highway with its X-rated drive-in movies and topless night clubs, is the nation's largest concentration of \'ietnamese restaurants. The 7th has a fairly large percentage of blacks (26`.;;, bat its most notable minority consists of American Indians (7%). In fact, more Indians bye than i-, ar.v other con, sessional district cast of the Mississippi. Most of ;hem are tTi > u ec n Cu.', ; ac d taut, ,,ace to t, e traditional caste system of the South has always ben uncizar. ::ob.-,~?, is aC,nut one-third white- one-third black, and one-third Indian, and in the days of _aerreca;ion the coumy maintained three chool systems. Indians have had their own civil rights cci scrstraticas, hat they also have objected to having their chi'dren bused to go to school with blacks. Like the Deep South, the 7th district has gyrated wildly in its presidential preference in the last three elections. In 1968 it was a near even split: Wallace finished first, hut Nixon, in third place, was only 6 o behind him. In 1972, McGovern lost some of the Humphrey votes, apparently because of his stand or- m'litary spending which did not sit well in Fayetteville or Fort Bragg; Nixon got 70% here. Four yea,-s later, the district had switched back to the Democrats, giving Jimmy Carter 6790 of its votes. In congressional elections, the. district has been more steady. The current Congressman, first elected in 1972, is Charles Rose Ill. Due to his associations with former Governor Terry Sanford-he worked for S' nferd's law firm and supported his 1972 presidential bid-Rose has been considered something of a liberal thou It he :n -is's he is a conservative- Rose left Sanford's `ism in the 1960s to n to hipbone town of 'asettevi!le, where he became a local prosecutor. In 1970 he quit to run for Congress. The incumbent was Alton Le-inon, a,-,- 64 and a former U.S. Senator who was appointed in 1953 and defeated for a full term in 1954. In the Senate, Lennon had hired as an aide Jesse Helms, later an iaitraconservative Senator himself; in the House, Lennon was a solid conservative and member of the Armed Services Committee. By 1970, however, he was a poor campaigner, and Rose carried the counties around Fayettevilie and wound up with 43% in the primary. So it was hardly a surprise when Lennon announced he would retire in 1972. Rose did not succeed to the seat without a contest. In the 1972 runoff he beat state Representative Hector McGcchy by a 5590-45io margin. But he seems to have made the seat safe. Two years later he beat M_cCcchy again, this time by a 61%-39 o margin; and he has had no trouble (81% in 1976) again;t Republican opponents. Rose was assigned initially to the ,riculture and House Adrnin,:tration Committees. He appears to be secure in his seat and, at 39, is likely to be aConares_;,an for a longtime to com Census Data Pop, 467,476. Central city, 21'7c: suburban, 17'.
