Rep. Thomas J. Bliley (R-Va.), chairman of the House Commerce Committee, made the demand at the start of the first House hearing on proposed national tobacco legislation.

Robert Jubelirer has never seen George W. Bush shake a hand, kiss a baby or try to rouse an audience of party faithful drowsing plateward after a rubber chicken dinner. He met the Texas governor just once--a decade ago. Yet Jubelirer, the president pro tem of the Pennsylvania Senate, has not only endorsed Bush for president in 2000, but he has also corralled 22 of his 29 Republican Senate colleagues to sign on with him.
