Former U.S. Rep. Samuel Stratton (D-N.Y.), an ardent supporter of national defense programs, has died of a heart attack in a nursing home. He was 73. Stratton, of Schenectady, N.Y., was known for his hawkish views, even as his party backed away from a tough military stance. He died Thursday of a heart attack, his son-in-law and former chief of staff Roger Mott said. Stratton had retired in 1988 because of his health, after serving his 15th term.
