Mr. Swerdlin:

I couldn't have said it better!  The majority selected their nominee -- I
also have heard reports that Reagan and Clinton were both behind in the
general election polls before they were elected.  Novemeber is a long way
away!  Dole is the real choice!


The Republican Congress has kept their word -- now let's show them we are
honored!  Retain the Republican majority and send Bob Dole to the White House!
