Today in the Sobel Timeline: July 9

On July 9, 1940, North American Governor-General Bruce Hogg met with leading members of the opposition Liberal Party to seek their support for his policy of providing covert military assistance to Great Britain, which was at war with the Germanic Confederation. After the meeting, Grand Council Minority Leader Hugh Devenny told reporters "there will be a political moratorium until the 1943 elections."

Devenny's statement appeared in the next day's issue of the New York Herald.
