President Franklin Roosevelt addresses a train-stop L.A. rally to renominate and re-elect U.S. Senator Willliam G. McAdoo (center). However, McAdoo would lose the Democratic primary that August to Sheridan Downey -- an advocate of the "Ham and Eggs" scheme to end the Great Depression. Downey would also win the Senate seat in November.
