The Nation

March 13, 1985

Democratic Party Chairman Paul G. Kirk Jr. said in Atlantic City, N.J., that the country does not need "two Republican Parties" and rejected the idea that Democrats must move further to the right to win the White House in 1988. In a speech to a union group, the new leader of the Democratic National Committee acknowledged that his party "lost a serious election on the national level" last November when President Reagan overwhelmed Walter F. Mondale by winning 49 states.
