Page 12 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Friday, March 18, 1988 Dole Lays Off More Staff, But Stays In Race RG4044 # AUTOMATIC FINE TUNING * CONTRAST 52 TUBE Associated Press Bob Dole, battered by Vice President George Bush in a string of Republican contests, laid off more campaign workers and threw a Capitol Hill party to thank staff and supporters, but was tenaciously clinging to his long-shot presidential bid. Meanwhile, the Democratic presidential contenders intensified their criticism of the Reagan administration for deploying U.S. forces in Central America. And Democrat Richard Gephardt dispatched some troops of his own today — sending dozens of congressional colleagues to stump for him in Michigan in a bid to shore up his faltering campaign. Michigan holds Democratic caucuses on March Governors May Decide Democratic Nominee WASHINGTON (AP) - Colorado's Roy Romer is ready for a brokered Democratic convention: "I'm going! I'd like to have a voice." But Arkansas' Bill Clinton is not so sure about a deadlocked meeting in Atlanta, as the Democratic governors worry about their party's still unresolved presidential battle. "It depends entirely on how all the major players conduct themselves," said Clinton, who considered entering the 1988 race himself. "If it turns out to be a really divisive fight waged in front of the entire American people on national television, it could be devastating." The Democratic governors are major players in the 1988 Democratic nomination battle, for they make up part of the 645 un- pledged super delegates to the Atlanta convention in July. With the Democratic race still confused and lacking a clear front-runner after a month of primaries and caucuses, the governors also now take on the role of leaders who can nudge the party to unify behind one candidate or to take the race to Atlanta. "There will be brokering," New York Gov. Mario Cuomo said Thursday. "The question is when and how. Either you broker at the convention ... and the whole United States will see you in the grubby business of cutting deals. I say that's no way to do it. Let's do it when they're not watching." One of the governors' own — Michael Dukakis of Massachusetts — leads Jesse Jackson narrowly in the race for national convention delegates, but both are far short of a majority of those chosen. Dukakis sought to widen his delegate lead Thursday by working Capitol Hill, where he picked up several endorsements. He visited with Sen. Bill Bradley of New Jersey, who is said to be leaning toward endorsing the Massachusetts governor. Colorado's Romer — who recently endorsed Dukakis with favorite son Gary Hart out of the race — was one of the few governors who has made .his choice who still likes the brokered convention idea. "It is possible it wi) be undecided by the time we get there and I don't think that's bad," he said. "It helps in the sense it keeps the excitement going." Romer brushed aside Democratic Party Chairman Paul Kirk's suggestion that party leaders get together after the primaries end in June to unite the party behind the leading candidate at that point. "Wait a minute! If you have three people pretty close and one's a little bit higher than the other, I don't think you can make that decision before the convention. Why do you have a convention? ... I'm going! I'd like to have a voice," he said. But Maryland Gov. Donald Schaefer said trying to guide one's delegation at a multiballot convention would be dangerous: "I'm going to step in with a light toe." Minnesota's Gov. Rudy Perpich doesn't think a brokered convention — where no candidate has a majority of the delegates and compromises must be sought to decide on a nominee — would be so bad. And he does not agree with Kirk's call for the party leaders to step in a month before the convention. Clinton said Kirk's idea might work if one of the candidates has more than 1,400 delegates at the end of the primary process — of the 2,082 needed to win the nomination. Political Roundup 26, and Gephardt badly needs a win. However, a new poll suggested Gephardt trailed rivals Jesse Jackson and Michael Dukakis in the state. The survey of 328 likely Democratic voters, conducted for the Detroit Free Press and WXYZ-TV, indicated Jackson and Dukakis each had 32 percent, 15 percent were undecided and Gephardt had 9 percent. Tennessee Sen. Albert Gore Jr. had 6 percent and Paul Simon 5 percent, according to the telephone survey, which had a margin of error of 5.4 percentage points. In Washington, Dole campaign spokeswoman Dale Tate said about a dozen national staff members were told Thursday their jobs would end at the week's end, and top aides were working without pay. However, she said Dole was still in the race. "Absolutely, positively nothing has changed," said Tate. "The senator is on the record about that." After losing the Illinois primary to Bush on Tuesday, Dole indicated he would stay in at least until Wisconsin's primary on April 5. On the Senate floor Thursday, Dole defended the dispatching of troops to Honduras, saying Nicaragua's Contra rebels were being "slaughtered by the hundreds." The U.S. troops were sent to conduct exercises as a show of strength after Nicaraguan forces chased Contras into Honduras. "Does it make sense, even as thousands of communist troops cross the border of a free country in this hemisphere, for members of Congress to make excuses for (Nicaragua's) aggression, while accusing the president of the United States of fueling the fires of war in Central America?" the Republican leader asked. Dole said Reagan should immediately resubmit a request for military aid to the rebels. The Democratic contenders sharply disagreed. "Our policy in Central America has been one of the worst fiascos of this administration," Dukakis said as he campaigned in Stratford, Conn., in advance of the state's March 29 primary. "There is no reason to have troops down there." Sending in the troops was "excessive and unnecessary," Jackson said.
