Janet Reno

February 7, 1994
Sen. Phil Gramm (R-Texas)--You just don't get it, do you! You criticize Janet Reno for caring "more about day care than about violent crime." How do you think criminals are made? And what do you think the answer to the crime problem is? Locking everyone up? Ms. Reno understands that we need to invest in the "people infrastructure" of our nation--our children--to reduce crime. Bravo to her! JUDY BOROSKIN Orange

Former U.S. Atty. Gen. Janet Reno, whose campaign to unseat Jeb Bush as Florida governor has included a dance party at a glitzy nightclub, has booked her friend Elton John to sing at a fund-raising concert, campaign officials said. The concert is scheduled for Sept. 18--eight days after the Florida primary in which Reno is seeking the Democratic nomination.

With polls showing her main Democratic challenger gaining on her, former U.S. Atty. Gen. Janet Reno jumped in her red pickup truck and took to the road again. Reprising the late February tour she used to reintroduce herself to voters, Reno kicked off an 11-day statewide journey in her Ford Ranger as partisan surveys showed her lead in the governor's race over Bill McBride shrinking. Recent polls indicate a gap of only 5 to 6 percentage points between McBride and Reno. The primary is Sept. 10.
