That analysis comes amid reports, in order to shore up the Dole candidacy, Republican operatives are trying to convince lower tier candidates to drop out. One was making it clear, he's not biting.
Lamar Alexander
So the GOP war marches on. Alexander has little organization or money to spend in Arizona. Polls show Forbes' bundle being spent on advertising may help him here. But political experts predict Buchanan's fiery brand of populism could sell well here. But many of his views, especially on immigration are controversial.
