Anderson's running mate apparently will not be Boston Mayor Kevin White, despite suggestions that the independent candidate was looking for someone who represents a major Northeastern city to share the ticket with him.
The two men met over the weekend at Anderson's request, but said later they had not discussed a White vice-presidential bid. "We didn't talk in that context at all," White, a Democrat, told newsmen afterward.
"We want over my platform on urban problems," Anderson said.
When asked whom he favors for president, White responded, "I'm not telling."
Anderson will join President Carter and Ronald Reagan on the list of speakers at the American Legion convention in Boston this week. Anderson, it was announced, will speak to the legionnaires Aug. 19. Reagan is scheduled to speak Aug. 20 and Carter Aug. 21.m
