In 1980 Ronald Reagan, as a candidate for president, delivered a speech at the annual county fair in which he announced "I believe in states' rights." "I believe we have distorted the balance of our government today by giving powers that were never intended to be given in the Constitution to that federal establishment." He went on to promise to "restore to states and local governments the power that properly belongs to them." This was regarded as quite controversial given Philadelphia's history of segregation and its being the site of the murder of civil rights workers. Some thought Reagan's speech marked thecontinuation of the successful Republican "Southern strategy".
