Buchanan Lumps GOP With Democrats

Campaign 2000

January 22, 2000|From Associated Press

ARLINGTON, Va. — Patrick J. Buchanan challenged conservative voters Friday to rethink their commitment to the Republican Party, saying the GOP has become indistinguishable from the Democratic Party.

"Our two Beltway parties have become two wings of the same bird of prey," Buchanan said in a speech to the 27th annual Conservative Political Action Conference.

Buchanan, who left the GOP in October to seek the Reform Party presidential nomination, accused the two White House front-runners, Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Al Gore, of being out of touch with the country.
