     * Rep. Jim Talent (R-MO) Running for Missouri Governor

     Pro-life  Rep.  Jim Talent has announced plans  to  run  for
     governor of Missouri in 2000. ``I'm enthusiastic about it,''
     said the 42-year-old Republican who won election to Congress
     in 1992.

     Democratic State Treasurer Bob Holden also has declared  his
     intention  to run. Two-term pro-abortion incumbent  Democrat
     Gov. Mel Carnahan is constitutionally prohibited from  seek-
     ing a third term.

     During  his tenure in Congress, Talent has scored a  perfect
     voting  record  on  life issues. Whether  it's  abortion  or
     assisted  suicide, tax funding or  partial-birth  abortions,
     Talent has supported the right to life position.

     Pro-life radio broadcaster Perry Atkinson was the new chair-
     man of the Oregon Republican Party in late January.

     After  his election, party officials voted to  prohibit  the
     GOP  from  giving any aid to GOP candidates  who  refuse  to
     endorse a ban on partial-birth abortions.

     Atkinson won a majority in the second round of balloting  on
     a 77-48 vote.  Atkinson, 50, hosts a political talk show  on
     a Christian radio station that he once owned and now  manag-
     es.  He also ran for Congress in 1994 and 1998, losing  both
     times in the primaries. He lost a close race for the  chair-
     manship in 1997 but was elected vice chairman. A son, Jason,
     recently began serving as a Republican state  representative
     from Jacksonville.
