80-20 Calls For a New Vote on Senate Majority Leader

80-20 today called for the Senate Republican Caucus to hold another vote on its majority leader. It urges YOU to do YOUR part to support that position.

The APA is the smallest minority, and therefore perhaps the most vulnerable. There are times that we must speak out to protect our interest. This is such a time, in light of Sen. Lott's repeated pro- segregationist statements.

As a result, 80-20 has issued a press release . S. B. Woo, President of 80-20, also faxed a letter to GOP Senator Don Nickles, the number two person in the GOP Caucus today. It supported Nickles' call for another vote on the majority leader. Copies were sent to other Senate leaders and the White House.

Beware, however, 80-20 is only as strong as you are. Its press release doesn't mean much unless you take the time to support its position. We urge you to fax(preferred) or e-mail the following leaders.

Senator Don Nickles
Fax (202) 224-6008,

Senator Mitch McConnell, who'll be the number 2 person in GOP in '03
Fax: (502) 582-5326,

Andrew Card, Chief of Staff, The White House
Fax: (202) 456-1907

Show our political establishment that APAs, though small in number, are highly organized and therefore can be very effective in politics affairs. Purpose? For our political leaders to begin taking our interests seriously.

Be sure to include your name, title, profession and address in your message. The message can be very short. An example is shown below. However, please use your own words.

I support 80-20's position on Sen. Lott. I urge another
vote on the senate majority leader.
Name, title, profession
Postal address

Counting on you. With every fax you send, you increase the political
clout of yourself and your children. Do it today.
