Hechler, who ran for governor and lost in the recent Democratic primary, said, "it's pretty evident the people feel I made a mistake by running for governor instead of for re-election to the House of Representatives. « * « "I ACCEPT the people's judgment. Now there are many who are urging me to give them a clear-cut choice among the candidates for Congress by encouraging a write-in vote in November. There are oui- ers who point to the complexities of write- ins on voting machines, since five of eight counties in the Fourth Congressional District have voting machines and only three counties-Mercer, Raleigh and Wyoming-have paper ballots." "Although it would have been perfectly legal to remain in both the Congress and governorship races. 1 felt I took the honest and direct course of action by withdrawing my name from the ballot for Congress. Hechler said the sole basis on which he will decide whether or not to launch a write-in campaign "is the advice of the people I have represented for 18 years.
