Reform Supporters Look to Ross Perot

March 10, 2000|From Times Wire Reports

Supporters of Reform Party founder Ross Perot are turning up the pressure on him to run for president to help boost his besieged party's credibility, but the Texas billionaire is showing no interest in a third bid for the White House. Reform Party members who say a Perot candidacy will help boost the party's stature argued that his silence is reason enough to go forward with efforts to draft him into the race. Patrick J. Buchanan, a former Republican, is seeking the presidential nomination. In Perot's home city of Dallas, four of his supporters said they would join a nationwide organization called the Committee to Draft Perot 2000.
