In the hours before Ross Perot publicly rejected any offer from the Dole campaign, Barbour told a Richmond fundraiser there's only one way President Clinton can win.
According to Barbour, that's if Perot stays in the race and splits the vote.
But new poll numbers from The Washington Post show Clinton has a 22 point lead over Dole, and Perot with only eight percent.
About one-thousand people paid 75 dollars a plate to attend the breakfast for Richmond Congressman Tom Bliley.
