In what looks like an attempt to catch Jim Ryun in a lie, the Jenkins campaign called Bob Dole to see if he endorsed Jim Ryun. Apparently Ryun told the 2nd District convention that Dole called him and encouraged him to run again. Turns out it's true, according to Dole. Dole did point out that once Jenkins got in the race, he declined to endorse either.
Not sure how this plays for either. Bet the Jenkins folks were licking their chops (and who can blame them) at the press release, "Ryun Lies."
The fact that Dole would call Ryun in the first place shows he thinks highly of Ryun. The fact that Dole wouldn't endorse, speaks highly of Jenkins.
As for the convention generally, no news to report. Jenkins takes veiled shots at Ryun. Ryun says he delivered for the district and shares their values . . . same song . . . we've got another 11 months of this . . .
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
