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!
